I'm not doing anything that special. I just use A LOT of programs running in the background. For example, there is a program called Dexpot that creates virtual desktops. I think people normally create 3 or so. I created 28 of them. And, each of the virtual desktops has a lot of icons. Here are just some of the programs I have running in the background:
- Logitech Gaming Software
- Intel Driver & Support Assistant
- Block Microsoft Edge
- MSI Mode Utility 2.0
- Domain Hosts Editor
- Macrium Reflect
- Resilio Sync
- 100 more programs.
Let me say that I have a lot of programs going on at the same time. And, it's starting to slow my computer down.
I purchased 64 gigs of RAM to speed up the programs that I close and open often during the day like my PDF reader, window layout manager, Microsoft Office (Excel is extremely slow), etc. because it's not a RAM memory issue but it's because it's an SSD storage issue. Windows 10 will try to optimally allocate the most used parts of a program into RAM and leave the biggest chunk of less accessed data on your hard drive or SSD (if it doesn't do this, you'd run out of RAM memory pretty quick). But, if that program is still slowing you down, that means that less accessed data in your hard drive or SSD is the next bottleneck because you are opening and closing the program too much. The next best step would be to put all of the program into RAM.
Well, that's my logic. It might be wrong since I'm not a computer person but it just make sense.
With respect to your question on page filing, I don't now the relationship between page file and with a RAM disk. I don't think they are connected. The computer accesses the page file when it runs out of RAM memory. So, why or how could you use RAM for page file when you just ran out of RAM?
If something is wrong with what I said (which there probably is), then let me know. I want to make a RAM disk but I wish someone would just do it for me. I wish there were websites that would do that.
