  1. Bug report - Windows 10 "Photos" app memory leak


    1. Double-click on a file in a directory with lots of images
    2. Wait for Photos to open the image
    3. Click the Crop tool
    4. Crop the image
    5. Click "Save" not Save a copy
    6. Click the right-arrow to go to the next image
    7. Repeat step 3

    The app gets slower over time, and memory consumption quickly starts to exceed 1GB.

    :)

  2. Memory Leak.

    Windows 10 is up to date.
    All drivers are updated.

    The app currently using the most memory is Firefox (but as I said above, it was Antimaleware service executable before)

    I'm not sure of recent changes.

    I honestly think its a bug that was accidentally put out, as a lot of people having memory leaks seem to be having different programs causing their own memory leak.

    Possible Memory Leaks in Windows 10

    A memory leak occurs when an application closes and fails to release all its RAM back to the operating system.

    The first step in dealing with a memory leak is to determine which application is leaking memory.

    The next step is to contact that application's technical support with complete details of the memory leak, since the developers will want to fix the problem ASAP.

    Bug report - Windows 10 "Photos" app memory leak

    Memory leak issue

    The term "memory leak" means that an application fails to return all its RAM to the operating system when it exits. The leftover RAM is unusable to the operating system.

    Step one is to identify the application that is leaking memory. Step two is to contact the application's developers and provide as much detailed data on the memory leak as you can. For example: which processes are still in RAM after the application exits
    and how much RAM they occupy. Application developers never want their applications to leak memory and they will be grateful for the details you provide, particularly if they can replicate the leak on their own computers.
