In this article I am gonna talk about a nasty bug that stays dormant for months and months till all of a sudden, it starts annoying you. I am talking about the bug that determines a very high usage of RAM in your Windows 10. Usually, while idle, Windows 10 uses a small percentage of RAM, around 20-30%, but if  you are affected by this issue the usage of RAM could be around 80-90% or even more. So, let’s so how to solve it thanks to a couple of tricks!

  2. Now, look for this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
  3. In the right pane, look for ClearPageFileAtShutDown’ and change its value to 1, by double clicking it.
  4. Restart your computer.

Otherwise, you can adjust your PC performance in order to not be too memory hungry, so to speak:

  1. Right click the Computer icon and click Properties.
  2. Select  the Advanced System settings tab.
  3. Go to the System Properties
  4. Click Settings
  5. Choose Adjust for best performance
