The defines the set of all possible values for a thread priority. Thread priorities specify the relative priority of one thread versus another.
Every thread has an assigned priority. Threads created within the runtime are initially assigned the Default priority, while threads created outside the runtime retain their previous priority when they enter the runtime. You can get and set the priority of a thread by accessing its Priority property, such as the PackagePriorityClass.
Threads are scheduled for execution based on their priority. The scheduling algorithm used to determine the order of thread execution varies with each operating system.
The priority of threads for this enumeration, in order of highest priority to lowest, is as follows:
