I heard somewhere that if you go into windows task manager (ctrl + alt + delete) and go to the processes tab, you can right click on Steam.exe and then click on Set Priority and then belowNormal.......will this crash Steam or not? I really want to reduce lag......

Changing the priority level can crash many programs. I'm not sure about steam.

Never set anything to REAL TIME or you WILL lose control of your putey.

It won't hurt to reduce Steam's priority. If it crashes, so what? It crashes all the time. Just restart it.

alright. I'll try it.



Would the only reason to reduce it's priority becuase it's sucking up all your CPU?

That would be a good reason to do it.

Or if it is spiking sometimes. Or if you just want to treat it like the shitty little bastard it is.
