Configures the use of the global pool by background tasks.

Syntax

Set-AppBackgroundTaskResourcePolicy
   -Mode <String>
   [-WhatIf]
   [-Confirm]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-AppBackgroundTaskResourcePolicy cmdlet configures the use of the global pool by background tasks. The global pool is a shared resource that provides CPU or network resources when an application requires additional resources to complete a task. You must have administrator access to set the background task resource policy.

Examples

Example 1: Set global resource policy to Conservative mode

PS C:\> Set-AppBackgroundTaskResourcePolicy -Mode Conservative

This command sets the global resource policy for background tasks to Conservative, which ensures that background tasks use the minimum CPU.

Example 2: Set global resource policy to Normal mode

PS C:\> Set-AppBackgroundTaskResourcePolicy -Mode Normal

This command sets the global resource policy for background tasks to Normal. A restart is required if the previous setting was Conservative.

Required Parameters

-Mode

Specifies the global pool settings for background tasks on the system. Valid values are Normal and Conservative. Use Normal to enable the global pool for all applications. Use Conservative to disable the global pool for all applications.
