How to increase the virtual memory of the windows 10

Your PC has two sorts of memory, Random Access Memory (RAM) and Virtual Memory. All APPLICATIONS use RAM, however when there isn’t sufficient RAM for the program you’re attempting to run, Windows briefly moves data that would ordinarily be put away in RAM to a record on your hard plate called a Paging Document. The measure of data briefly put away in a paging document is additionally alluded to as virtual memory. Utilizing virtual memory, as such, moving data to and from the paging record, opens up enough Smash for projects to run accurately.

When more RAM is available means the computer is more fast and if the computer is slow because of the RAM then you have to increase the virtual memory to increase the speed of the computer. However your computer work way more faster when you have RAM good and the machine will read the programs so easily and quickly than from hard disk. So for the permanent solution try to use the Ram.

If you will receive or if you are receiving any error message that is warning of low virtual memory then you may need to add RAM or increase the virtual memory. Windows usually manage this automatically but everyone can change the virtual memory manually if the default size is not enough then use it.


This is the formula for calculating the virtual memory. Initial size is one and a half(1.5) into the total memory of the machine. The maximum size is into 3 into the initial size (3).

So lets say you have 4gb Ram.

Formula will work like this 4*1024 = 4096 and that is the memory of the computer as it is 4gb. and every gb is equal to 1024mb.

The initial size of the memory into 1.5 so it is 4096*1.5 = 6144

and the maximum should be multiplied by the minimum into 3 and that will come up as 18432.

1024*4=4096 full memory. virtual minimum 1.5*4096=6144(minimum)

Maximum will come when you multiply minimum with three (6144*3=18432) 18432 (Maximum

Means 4GB RAM is going in virtual as minimum 6144 and maximum 18432.

Maximum will come when you multiply minimum with three (6144*3=18432) 18432 (Maximum)
