RAM (Random Access Memory) is a device that serves to save programs temporarily. This device plays an important role when we open the program. Sometimes we often experience that our computers feel slow when used, usually because we use software heavy enough, or open files large, or open multiple applications at the same time.

The solution if we often experience the above problems is to useupgrade RAM on our computer. But if the funds are running low, especially the old date, of course you don’t want your work to be hampered just because of RAM, right? Well in this article the author will discuss how to add virtual RAM to deal with slow computer problems due to RAM.

Windows 10’s built-in virtual memory already exists, but before we get started, there are some important rules before adding virtual RAM.

Installed RAM is the amount or capacity that is installed on our computer.

big/ value initial size on virtual RAM is 1.5 times of Installed RAM.

big/ value maximum size is 3 times the value of initial size.

For example:

1GB = 1,024MB
4 GB = 4 x 1,024 MB = 4096 MB

so Installed RAM 4 GG = 4096 MB

Initial size : 1.5 x 4096 MB = 6.144 MB

maximum size : 3 x 6,144 MB = 18,432 MB

To make it easier, let’s practice, first you have to prepare a computer with Windows 10 OS, then open it File Explorer, then follow these steps;

  • Right click “This PC” and select “Properties”
