Fix High Memory/RAM Usage On Windows 7/8/10

    Almost every windows user face high ram usage while doing their everyday tasks. As a software developer, I prefer Linux based system like Ubuntu for development. You do not need to restart your linux system in order to free up ram. But in Windows system, with time, the system services will eat up most of your memory. 

     There was a time when my colleague who was using windows 10 for development started facing high ram usage. His ram usage was mostly spiked by system apps thats why he was not able to clear those processes. That made him restart his system after 4 to 5 hours. 

     To solve these type of silly issues with Windows operating systems, I am sharing some brief about RamMap tool by Microsoft. -> Link 

If you want to see how RamMap works, you can watch below video on the go.

High Memory/RAM Usage On Windows Operating System Solved




     First of all, visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/rammap  and download Microsoft RamMap exe or zip file. 

Now, Open the exe file and you will see some spike in your ram usage as it keeps all data in ram. After opening the app, you will see The following tabs available on the main RAMMap screen:

  1. Use Counts: Usage summary by type and paging list.
  2. Processes: Process working set sizes.
  3. Priority Summary: prioritized standby list sizes.
  4. Physical Pages: Per-page use for all physical memory.
  5. Physical Ranges: Physical memory addresses.
  6. File Summary: File data in RAM by file.
  7. File Details: Individual physical pages by file.

     Using the in depth analysis of ram usage bu RamMap tool, you can debug what causing high ram usage in your operating system. This will enable a technician to troubleshoot the major issues. 



     If, you are now ready to use this tool, I will recommend you to empty standby list. This will clear all unused ram which is stuck even after closing apps. You can find lots of tutorials for optimizing game shuttering and using this tool to free up ram. 

    If, above is not helping you, then there is one more thing you can do. 
  1. Click EMPTY.
  2. Click Empty Working Sets.
     You will notice some spike in your disk usage and at the same time you will see ram start decreasing every second. 

     Warning : I am using Empty Working Sets and Empty Standby list without any issues. I had never touched other settings and I am not sure how other settings will effect your system so please be careful before trying other settings in RAMMap tool. 


     This tool will help you in fixing standby memory windows 10 memory leak. Although this tool is not a permanent fix but it will help you in troubleshooting to fix root cause of original problem.
