Here's the easy way.  

Paste the script below into a text file with a .vbs extension.  Customize the value of the strProgram variable on line 1 with the location of the program.  Running the script will launch the program with Low priority.  To launch it with the BelowNormal priority instead, replace /LOW with /BELOWNORMAL in line 2.

To change a running program's priority, see this article.


strProgram = "C:\Program Files\MyProgram\MyProgram.exe"
strCommand = "cmd /c start """" /LOW """ & strProgram & """"
 
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Exec(strCommand)

Open in new window
