  1. Apps crashing - memory allocation issues, but only is task manager isnt running.


    as title says, if i have task manager open i can leave my pc on for weeks with no problem. with task manager closed it is almost every day i'll have to restart my computer (if it doesnt automatically) to get my programs to work properly. last night i closed task manager and this morning firefox was closed (brought up to session restore) and everything (search program) had an error about memory and discord is froze and dropbox is non responsive (and wont sync).

    i've been having this issue for months and somehow leaving task manager running solves the problem. i've never seen this before and have found absolutely nothing of the sort by googling. it is a fairly fresh install of windows, less than a year. i have tried different ram and made sure page file is turned on, as i've seen memory related issues having it off and not full (presumably due to fragmentation of the ram), but that is unrelated it seems.

    has anyone else ever seen this? any suggestions? thanks! still using version 1909 btw

    Task Manager not running


    I have added a new task to the ones already populated which I suppose were in Win7
    The new task or the present tasks are not running as there is no entry in the history or
    recently run file
    are there other steps necessary to get the new task manager to start up ?

  3. Memory Allocation Question

    You cannot allocate storage memory to program memory. What your can do is make sure that you doi not have a many applications running in the background. Windows mobile is a great multitasking OS. The problem is that it does not really close applications.
    It minimizes them and thus stay in memory. Use Task Manager to close these applications. Let me know if this helps.
