    How to manually change virtual memory size on Windows 7 based Asus laptop?

    As of now the virtual memory size on my Windows 7 based Asus laptop is set to change automatically depending on the requirements. I would like to change it manually to suit my usage. How can I do that?

    Firstly you need to get into the control panel section from the start screen of Windows 7 based Asus laptop. Then ‘system’ option is supposed to be opted in the ‘System and Security’ section. On the left pane, you can go for the ‘Advanced System settings’ option. From the advanced tab, you can tap and choose the ‘System Properties’ option. Followed by that, you should go to ‘Performance Options’ window. Then on the ‘Virtual memory’ section, you can tap on the change button. The ‘Automatically manage paging file size for all devices’ should be located and the checkbox placed next to it must be cleared. You can adjust the size to your convenience in the ‘Custom’ section and tap on ‘set’. For finally saving the changes, you must go for the ‘ok’ option.

    Though windows suggest the system defined page file or Virtual Memory for its better performance,
    yet any user has its own right to manipulate manually by using the following steps.

    Click start--control panel--system and security--advanced system settings--system properties--performance--virtual memory, here click Change, and unselect "automatically manage paging file size for all devices" and select Custom option tgen set the page fike size manually, and click Set.

    This will set the page fike size to your choice.

    to change the virtual memory of your windows computer device, follow these instructions-
    1-Right click on "computer" and select properties.
    Then at the left side, click "Advanced system settings".
    a pop up will open and there under "performance" section, select "settings".
    Like in the pic-

    click "change" under "virtual memory"
    Again a popup will open. Uncheck the present options and now you can select the drive from where you can fetch the virtual memory and increase it..
