Prio :extends the task manager with new features

Posted by

Sometimes Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) help us to know what processes are saturating our machine and to kill them if they are leaving the system choked.

However sometimes we would just change the priority of (running) processes so that each time you start an application it will run with a priority. The priority of an application is a parameter that tells the system which task has priority over other .

To this end we present you today Prio (Process Priority Saver), a small but very useful tool that will help us in this task.

Prio improves the standards of Windows Task Manager by adding some extra functionality to it.

Prio adds several options to the task manager as the possibility of saving the priority of applications and the tabs “Services” and “TCP / IP.”

The Services tab lets us see all the services running and also tips with the description of each service.
TCP/IP tab shows shows all TCP / IP connections and all open ports (both TCP and UDP).
Moreover, it shows statistics of packets sent and received as well as the current speed of each connection. In the same way as in the Services tab, you can close any connection with the right mouse button.
Another interesting feature is it has the ability to save the priority assigned to a given process, so that you don’t have to configure it every time you launch that program.
Prio is a very useful addition to the Task Manager, adding features that will save you time and facilitate the efficient management of system resources.

Prio is free for personal use, requires a system reboot in order for us to use and runs on Win2000/NT/XP/2003/Vista .
