Setting Priority with "Elevated Shortcut without UAC Prompt Tutorial"
I used the info in Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt Tutorial and it soon dawned on me that the applications seemed to be taking a long time to run.
Than the penny dropped - Scheduled Tasks run at priority 7 by default (which is lower than directly run applications typically run at) and the Task Scheduler does not directly provide a way to set priorities. So I Exported each task [that I had added] (as XML), deleted each task, edited the XML to change priority to 6 (which makes all the difference) and then Imported the tasks again. Problem solved.
The point of this posting is really to suggest that the Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt Tutorial could mention the priority issue and its solution.

If you use this software created by another forum member any program that runs via the elevated shortcut that was created using the software will run with Normal priority instead of Below Normal priority.
ElevatedShortcut - bypass the UAC prompt!
I use it a lot! It's quicker than creating elevated shortcuts manually by a long way.
I've also used it to create elevated shortcuts for programs that I want to run on startup from a batch file. Works like a charm.
If you want to attempt to change priority yourself maybe take a look here:

Note: I have not tried this method and when you've read the article you know as much as i know about it.
