    Desktop Window Manager dwm.exe high memory usage


    After turn on the computer and work for some time, Desktop window manager dwm.exe gradually increases its memory usage. some times it takes 1.5GB to 2GB of memory. until I shut down the computer it is not reducing its memory usage.

    this issue arises very recently. before that, there is no such issue.

    Please help to fix this issue.

    :)

    Desktop Window Manager High GPU Usage in Windows 10

    Hey everyone,

    i got the same Problem since two days. My PC configuration is a Gigabyte 2070 Super 8GB and a Ryzen 7 3700X and ive got every update from Windows and Geforce experience. I am wondering why Windows doesnt said anything to this Problem after seeing this thread
    being 20 Pages Long. Does anybody tried These Solutions
    https://appuals.com/fix-desktop-window-manager-high-cpu-usage-dwm-exe/
    ?

    First i thought the cause is Google Chrome because it made high gpu and Volt usage too but after an uninstall the Problem was still there.

    Is there any Suggestion how to solve the Problem. If this link is working please tell me.

    Desktop Window Manager high memory usage

    dwm.exe randomly uses ALOT of memory on my HTPC. I have 8gb ram and after a scheduled nightly restart dwm will use 80% of that memory until I restart again, then the computer runs fine.

    I have tried fixes/solutions to other similar posts with dwm issues to no avail.

    Any new suggestions to try?

    Cheers
