How to free your computer s RAM from Windows to optimize it


We give you some tips with which you can optimize the RAM of your computer in Windows so that it works more smoothly

One of the most common problems that we usually encounter when working on a day-to-day basis with the PC, is the lack of RAM, more if we take into account that the programs we use are increasingly morepowerful and therefore demanding in this regard.So, if we are concerned about the use of RAM in the computer and we need to be able to manage it more efficiently, in these lines we are going to give you some tips that will surely help you.And then we will review some practical tricks that are intended to free up RAM from the PC.First of all it should be clear that when we talk about this particular component, we mean a random access memory or Random Access Memory , which is actually a short-term storage that contains programs that are currently running.Thus, the more RAM we have in the computer, the more programs we can run simultaneously without this adversely affecting the performance of the computer , since when the computer runs out of RAM, it uses part of the hard disk , an element that is much slower.Therefore, let's look at some alternatives to deal with it more efficiently.To start we can try to restart the computer , something that we have heard many times, as it is the solution for many problems with the computer, but in this case, restarting will erase the memory and restore all running programs.This will not increase the available RAM, but at least it will clean processes that run in the background and might be consuming memory .At the same time it is also advisable to check the use of RAM in general from the Windows 10 Task Manager .Thus, we will only have to open the Task Manager, for example with the key combination "Ctrl + Shift + Esc" and access the "Processes" tab where we click on the "Memory" section to order the use of thesame and see what you consume most in the first place.In the same way we can place ourselves in the “Performance” tab and in the “Memory” section we will see a graph of the use of RAM over time.Here we also observe other useful data such as the total RAM , the currently available, the cache , etc.How to manage RAM more efficientlyThus, in the case that we see that RAM consumption is very high, one of the options we have is to uninstall or deactivate software .Therefore we will have to consider which applications use more memory in the system with the method just shown, and consider the applications that we really need.Keep in mind that we can have tools installed that we never use and that are wasting resources on the computer, so we should eliminate them.In the same way, if we need a certain application but we see that it consumes a lot of RAM, sometimes we can take advantage of other lighter alternatives of that same app.Serve as an example that Adobe Photoshop is a very powerful application and that we can always opt for other lighter proposals like Paint.NET , for example.We must also pay attention to the programs that we have open and close any software that we are not working with at that time to release RAM, something that we cancarry out in the Task Manager and finishing the processes of unnecessary tools.

Other measures to be taken to save RAM

In the event that Memory consumption remains very high, it is worth checking if there is malware on the PC , since these malicious elements that act in the background, may be responsible for this high consumption of resources, something we can do with the security solution that we have installed. On the other hand, if messages appear on the screen that indicate that the system has little virtual memory , we can always increase it and thus improve the overall performance of the team .

This is something we can do from the Control Panel of Windows 10, specifically by clicking on the section called “System” setting the view mode as “Small icons”. Once here, on the left side of the interface we click on “Advanced system configuration” and we are located in the “Advanced options” tab, where we click on “Configuration” within the sector of "Performance." There we click again on “Advanced options” and we can modify the virtual memory of the equipment increasing its size.

Changing third, in case we have installed a hard disk something old, we can try the Windows function called “ReadyBoost” to increase the RAM, which will allow us to connect a flash drive or SD card for the system to treat as a device with additional RAM . To do this, all we need is to connect the additional unit to the USB port, select its properties with the right button of the mouse , and click on the “ReadyBoost” tab to select the option “Use this device” . Of course, if we have a unit SSD , this will not help.

And of course, if nothing This seems to work to improve the performance of the equipment, we will have no choice but to install new memory modules to the computer, with the cost that this entails.

Applications for free RAM

Finally, we will tell you that on the Internet we can find some third-party solutions that can be of help when freeing and optimizing the use of RAM, tools that you can download and install on Windows . This is the case of Mem Reduct , an application that manages and optimizes the use of the RAM in Windows and of which we already talked to you in details a few months ago.

At the same time, another option that we can also use for these same optimization tasks is the Razer Cortex program, a software that focuses on optimize our team when we are playing with it, so one of the many sections to which it refers, is precisely to RAM. So, this is an application that can help us in these tasks, not only when playing in Windows.

And finally we will mention the tool called Wise Memory Optimizer , a portable program that releases memory that is being used unnecessarily, quickly and efficiently. It is also very easy to use, so it will be of great help even if we do not have too much knowledge on these issues.
