    Free Up RAM From Background Tasks


    I'm using Windows 10 32 bit on my PC with just 2 GB RAM and many background tasks like Windows Defender Services, Cortana and dozens of other tasks are always running in the background. My question is that "Will ending these Background Tasks enhance the performance of my PC upto some extent? And also, Microsoft Edge automatically starts on Windows Startup and I don't want it to run in the background! How do I disable it?

    :)

  2. Background tasks no-longer running

    So I've now got my background tasks working again with the help of people at the WPCentral forum. They advised that I uninstall apps that can use background tasks, whether those tasks are enabled or not. The theory is that Windows Phone has some kind of
    issue with there being too many apps installed that register the use of background tasks and that disabling the background tasks does not help.



    So here's what I did:

    • Go to settings --> swipe left --> background tasks --> advanced.
    • Make a list of all of the apps installed that can run background tasks.
    • Uninstall as many of those apps as possible. In my case, I had quite a few apps that I actually rarely use.
    • Restart the phone.
    That's it. The background tasks for the apps I actually want to be able to run then just started running again. One person in the thread suggested you can also work around the problem by careful configuration of each app to disable background operations
    you don't actually want, without having to uninstall them.



    For more detail you can see the WPCentral forum thread here:

    Background tasks

    I am using nokia lumia 800.

    No background tasks, only home screen, seen when press and hold "Back" arrow.



    Then i go into settings > applications, tap "background tasks", tap "advanced"...shows a list of apps.



    Question: Are there background tasks actively running?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response.

    Apologize for delay in reply.

    As a workaround, I suggest you to change the desktop background/ remove the desktop background and check.

    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
