Gets or sets a value indicating whether the operating system should temporarily boost the priority of the associated thread whenever the main window of the thread's process receives the focus.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
When is true, the system temporarily boosts the thread's priority whenever its associated process is taken out of the wait state. This action prevents other processes from interrupting the processing of the current thread. The setting affects all existing threads as well as any threads subsequently created by the process. To restore normal behavior, set the PriorityBoostEnabled property to false.
Boosting the priority too high can drain resources from essential operating system and network functions. This could cause problems with other operating system tasks.
