Unhappy Only one Worker Window is working?

Hello,

I am running Prime95 on a dual-core Windows 10 i7 processor, so it should be capable of up to 4 threads. I have 2 worker windows open right now. Worker #1 is doing whatever work makes the most sense, while Worker #2 is set to do first-time tests on record-size Mersenne numbers. Worker #2 has been assigned a number already (M80027309), but it is not doing any work right now. Only Worker #1 is producing output. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you set Affinity under (menu) Test>Worker Windows?
Note: It is better not to post entire assigned numbers. It could lead someone to being a jerk, and taking the assignment. Don't post the long hex number, either, at least in its entirety. That is what makes the assignment yours.

Thanks, I'm new to the program and this project and I feel like an old grandma trying to use a phone for the first time. That solution worked and I now have 2 workers running with 2 CPU threads each. As for the message, I'll make sure not to do that again. Thanks for the advice!
