What can I do to reduce the amount of memory being used by Windows?

1. Disable unnecessary services: Unnecessary services can take up memory resources. Right-click the Start menu, select Task Manager, click the Services tab, and disable any services that are not required.

2. Disable unneeded startup programs: Download and run a program such as Autoruns to easily view, manage, and remove any unwanted Windows startup programs.

3. Close unused programs and applications: Make sure all applications, programs, and browser tabs are closed when they are not in use. This can help free up memory.

4. Clear your web browser cache: Web browsers can take up significant amounts of memory, so clearing the browser cache regularly can free up some resources.

5. Upgrade your RAM: If you can afford it, consider upgrading your computer’s RAM. This will dramatically increase the amount of memory available for Windows.

6. Adjust the page file size: The page file is used by Windows to supplement the physical RAM in the system. By adjusting the size of the page file, you can allocate more memory resources for Windows.

7. Use a dedicated RAM disk: If available, consider using a dedicated RAM disk, which allows you to store data in the RAM, freeing up additional memory resources.
