Will TopWinPrio work on Windows 8?

I get this question a lot.

TopWinPrio.pngIf you bought a computer with Windows8. You probably don’t need TopWinPrio. Most new computers are really fast and adding more apps to speed it will only slow down the system.

If you have an old machine (from Vista/Win7) where you upgraded to Win8… Well, you may have some use of it. I wrote the program mostly to speed up games. So if you are going to play games, go ahead and try it.

The thing with Windows 8 is that it has apps, and the apps go to sleep as soon as you shift window. That way they don’t use up a lot of CPU time. So if you’re only using apps, you don’t need it.

If you use Windows 8 on desktop mode to play games, well, then you may have some use of it. Still, most computers are really fast nowadays, so I really don’t see why you would need it.

TopWinPrio was written in the good old days when Windows 7 was something new and Windows Vista was hogging the system. That made games go sluggish.

In conclusion, if you have an old computer, TopWinPrio might help :)
