Windows 10 Bluetooth CPU priority
"svchost.exe - k bthsvcs" is the exact process that you need to act on if you wish to ensure High CPU Priority especially for things like A2DP/AptX and ensuring low latency as well as high audio quality. This was the reason I had to find out, as Games where making my Bluetooth Headphones skip and drop quality despite absolutely fine signal.
I used the Free (Nag's a little however) program Process Lasso to automate setting the process to High Priority. Problem Solved for me :)
Please note some programs do not separate each Service and just show "svchost.exe"
Checkout the details tab of task Manager.
- Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC
- In the window that pops up, click details tab.
- Right click the service you want.
- Mouse over Set Priority.
In Command Prompt execute
tasklist /svc /fi “imagename eq svchost.exe” to see the list of process IDs.
Find the 'bthserv' service and notice the PID. Then Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC, select the corresponding PID and set it to high priority.
