  1. High ram usage by Desktop Window Manager


    I have recently been noticing that the Desktop Window Manager has been taking up large amounts of memory, up to two gigs when I was watching it. My question is, why? I've never seen this process use so much memory before on any other computer I have used in the past. Is it because this laptop has a 4k screen that requires more resources to display? It's an HP Envy 15, the 2060 Max Q variant. Does anyone have any fixes or is this just something I should be expecting?

    Desktop Windows Manager high GPU usage persists

    Several individuals have reported Desktop Window Manager (dwm.exe) using unrealistic amounts of GPU for video playback, gaming, or any high graphics intensive activity. Here is a list of just a few of the many requests for support on this issue:

    Example 1

    Example 2

    Example 3

    Example 4

    Example 5

    It has been a few years now that this problem has been reported, are there any accepted fixes. From what I gather, even those individuals with serious graphics cards are vulnerable to dwm.exe dominating their available GPU. I myself report this issue, even
    on games and design software with the settings at a minimum. For example, Java will be using ~45% of the available GPU, whereas dwm.exe takes up the remaining ~55%. As stated previously, the result is the entire system halting, not just the game. The mouse
    will take a few seconds to stutter across the screen, and task manager will take 5+ seconds to even appear.

    There have been many suggestions and no results. Is that Microsoft's consensus then? Thank you ahead of time.

    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.
