Increase your RAM and so system speed
Hello friends....speed of a system entirely depends upon ram(random acess memory).
This all we know...today i will tell u, how to avoid extra usage of ram,while the application is not in use....
There are many other tweeks and tricks to speed up your system,which i will write for u,if i get time.
If anyone have any better idea....then please tell.
And dont forget to do comments.
1). Start any application, say Word. Open some large documents.
2). Press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open Windows Task Manager and clickProcesses tab and sort the list in descending order on Mem Usage. You will notice that WINWORD.EXE will be somewhere at the top, using multiple MBs of memory.
3). Now switch to Word and simply minimize it. (Don't use theMinimize All option of the task bar).
4). Now go back to the Windows Task Manager and see whereWINWORD.EXE is listed. Most probably you will not find it at the top. You will typically have to scroll to the bottom of the list to find Word. Now check out the amount of RAM it is using. Surprised? The memory utilization has reduced by a huge amount.
5). Minimize each application that you are currently not working on by clicking on the Minimize button & you can increase the amount of available by a substantial margin. Depending upon the number and type of applications you use together, the difference can be as much as 50 percent of extra RAM.
In any multitasking system, minimizing an application means that it won't be utilized by the user right now. Therefore, the OS automatically makes the application use virtual memory & keeps bare minimum amounts of the code in physical RAM.
