1. Uninstall unused programs: Uninstalling any programs you don’t use can help free up system resources and increase the amount of available RAM. To uninstall a program, go to your Control Panel, select Uninstall a Program, and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Close unnecessary background programs: Many programs run in the background, consuming system resources and memory. To view and close these programs, open the Task Manager by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ESC. Select the Processes tab, then click End Process for any unnecessary programs.
3. Disable startup programs: Some software is designed to launch automatically when your computer turns on. This software can consume a lot of memory. To disable these programs, open the System Configuration window by entering “msconfig” in the Windows search bar. Select the Startup tab, then uncheck any unneeded programs.
4. Use an anti-virus program: Viruses, spyware, and other malicious software can consume memory and slow down your computer. Use an anti-virus program to scan for and remove malicious software.
5. Upgrade RAM: If you’ve tried all of the above methods and still can’t free up enough memory, you may want to consider upgrading your RAM. Visit your local computer store or search online for compatible RAM that’s compatible with your computer.
