To assign a process to a processor

On the Processes tab, right-click the process you want to assign, click Set Affinity, and then click one or more processors.


The Set Affinity command is available only on multiprocessor computers.

Using the Set Affinity command limits the execution of the program or process to the selected processors and might decrease overall performance.
