How do I free up RAM on my PC?

1. Close Unused Programs: Open the Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and select “Task Manager” or press Ctrl + Alt + Delete simultaneously to open it. Now under Processes tab, check which programs are taking a lot of memory and then click on End Task to close that program and free up your RAM.

2. Reboot Your Computer: A simple reboot can help to clear out RAM and make more room for new programs.

3. Clear Your Cache and Temporary Files: Some applications store temporary files and cached data in your system’s RAM, which can take up a lot of memory. Run a disk cleanup to clear out these files.

4. Stop Startup Programs: Many programs start running in the background when you turn on your computer. Disable these programs to free up RAM.

5. Limit the Number of Apps Running in the Background: This is especially true if you are using a smartphone or tablet. Make sure you force close any apps that you are not actively using to free up RAM.

6. Add More RAM: Adding more RAM to your system can help to significantly improve performance and reduce lag.
