  1. explorer.exe takes up 1.8GB RAM


    Anyone else noticed this?

    Happens automatically with time, desktop still usable but slow.

    After killing explorer.exe and rerun it goes back to 45MB RAM which is expected.

    I rarely restart the PC.

    Looks like memory overflow, who wrote this shit?!

    Windows 7 never had this problem.



    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

    Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363

    Hyper-V - VM Monitor Mode Extensions Yes

    Windows shows 8GB RAM installed but 4GB RAM is usable

    Hi There,

    I've just upgraded my pc from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Windows seems to have detected this upgrade but why does it show as only 4GB RAM available. The following is what I have tried so far with no luck:

    • I have tried the msconfig method on ensuring maximum memory is not checked.
    • physically removed the new RAM and reinstalled it
    Any thoughts/suggestions on how i can resolve this matter?

    Thanks

  3. Internet Explorer uses a lot of RAM

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your description, I understand that internet explorer is consuming more ram space. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise due to:

    • Opening multiple tabs at a time.
    • Using add-on.
    • Virus.
    • Multiple internet explorer opens in Task manager.
    I suggest you to follow the steps below and also check whether multiple Internet explorer process are running at the same time.

    • Press Ctrl + Alt + Del
    • Open Task manager.
    • Click on Detail Tab.
    • You will see MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe file.
    • Right Click and End Task.
    • Restart the computer.
    If the issue persists, I suggest you to perform virus scan by using Windows Defender Offline Beta from the below link and check if it helps.
