Thumbs up Easy Ram Solution

I have a solution for people who can't afford more RAM...

A pageing file is an area on the hard disk that Windows uses as if it were RAM
First right click on my computer, then click on properties...

After that click on the advanced tab on the far right, then performance settings

Now click on the advanced tab...

at the bottom of the page it says Virtual memory, click on the Change button

raise initial and maximum size and click set

Congratulations, now you have more ram

it doesn't move nowhere near the speed of physical ram. it will improve performance though. I set people computer with low ram so that both of them equal 2000
