Home » How to fix Battlefield 1 constantly alt-tabbing for processor boost

The highly anticipated first person shooter Battlefield 1, which puts you in the shoes of a World War 1 soldier, has finally come out, and people are in love with the game, fascinated by the experience, and also  a bit frustrated about a little issue.

As it just came out, the game is quite demanding for PCs, even the high end ones. People have been using a little trick to boost performance, which generally works for any video game running on PC. The processor tweak is used to make the processor allocate more resources for running Battlefield 1, instead of all the other processes going on in the background. However, a user pointed out that this little trick requires players to constantly alt-tab out of the game, which can be stressful at times. That is why he came up with a solution for the problem, which is easy to use.

“Many FPS Guides say that you should set the process priority in the taskmanager to “high”. But always alt+tab’ing out of the game is kind of anoying.

So here is a better way – Set it permanently!

All you have to do is:

  1. Create a .txt file and copy n’ paste the following into it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\bf1.exe\PerfOptions]

“CpuPriorityClass”=dword:00000003

  1. Save the file as .reg
  2. Run it – Done!
  3. Pr000fit!

Hope you like it”

According to this user on the Battlefield1 forums, all users have to do is create a text file and copy the provided code, then save the text file as a registry key, or a .reg file. This should be enough to make the computer constantly treat the Battlefield 1 process as a priority.

The processor tweak isn’t 100% effective, as it the results may differ depending on what game your are trying to boost performance for, or what kind of computer you are using. However, it is a valid solution when trying to boost gaming performance, and if it works for you, then this registry key will make it so you don’t have to repeat the process every time you start the game.
