Virtual memory is nothing but the extended memory which is different from the device memory. The virtual memory is the combination of RAM and some portion of the hard disc. If the device runs out of RAM when performing an intensive execution, Window would dip into virtual memory for temporary file storage.

  • On the keyboard, tap windows key and Pause or break key simultaneously.
  • After that, you should choose Advanced System Settings on the left panel.
  • Go to the Advanced option, then tap Settings.
  • Again when you go to the Advanced tab then select 'Change..' in the virtual memory section.
  • Here a Window user should ensure the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box in NOT ticked.

Initial Size: As per the configuration of your computer this value changes. If somehow you are not sure about what value you need to use, just enter whatever the number is in the Recommended category.

Larger Size: The value of this section should not be too high. Maintain the size near about 1.5 times the size of your physical RAM. Here is the example, A computer with 4 GB of RAM must not more than about 6,144 MB virtual memory (4096MB * 1.5).
