Changing the process affinity means that you restrict the application from running only on certain processor cores. This can be very useful if you have a program that occupies the entire CPU. If this happens, your computer will be almost unusable until the program frees up resources.
That’s why we’ve created a tutorial showing you how to change the affinity of a program on Windows 10.
- Right-click on the Start line and click on Task Manager
- Click on Details
- Find the name of the program for which you want to change the affinity and right-click
- Click Set affinity
- Select the cores that the program will be allowed to use and click OK
