Default Explorer (file browser) Priority

I was wondering if you guys could tell me at what priority your explorer runs in a regular XP install (no alternative shell). It would also be nice if someone using a different shell gave me some input...

I have a feeling that explorer doesn't run at high priority by default (mine does)...

Explorer.exe for me is default at "Normal" priority.

ditto, why do you ask? Is it taking up a lot of cpu processes 'er something?

I ask cuz i was trying to find the reason why litestep was using up to 200Megs of memory while idle....turns out it was an outdated module in a theme...that was fixed....but then i noticed the cpu usage fluctuated between 5-12% when usually it for 0-5%....Didn't really notice it till i was reorganizing me files (used several instances of explorer on different desktops) that plus i had some other stuff open, then all of a sudden opening a directory became sluggish...usually this doesn't happen....so i went to the task manager to see whats up...there werent any secret progs running, so then i decided to check priorities...thats when i came across explorer running at High...now im trying to see if there's something i can add to explrer, say a switch or something to run it at normal priority or a switch for a shortcut ......tried adding /NORMAL and -NORMAL but it didn't help....i tried another string "start......." (something really long), but it wont work with me hotkeys for some reason.....

Hope that makes some sense

This is how i'd change it to normal if you want to do that: Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE on the keyboard. In processes right-click on explorer, go to set priority and click normal.
