    dwm.exe High memory


    The DWM.exe service runs perfectly fine upon start-up and has an average memory usage of about 100-150MB. However, after using windows for few minutes, the DWM.exe skyrockets from 100-150MB to approximately around 1.5-2GB worth of active memory use.

    kill dwm.exe windows 10 pro 64bit

    I found this link

    What is dwm.exe and why is it using so much memory?

    With this note: "The steps below only work for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Desktop Windows Manager is not displayed in the Services window on Windows 8 and Windows 10, and therefore cannot be turned off or disabled."

    High memory usage: Apparently this is also using memory in my graphics card because I get a message in games even on very low graphics that I'm using more than my graphics card's available memory.
