    Is it possible to change the size of Windows systemís virtual memory?

    Virtual memory helps the PC to execute programs and actions quickly when you are running low on random-access memory (RAM). I would like to choose the size of the memory that the virtual memory should utilize. Is it possible for me to practically change the size of virtual on Windows 7 system?

    Open up the Control Panel in your Windows 7 system. From the Control Panel, select ‘System and Security’option. From the System and Security section, select System option. Now, select ‘Advanced system settings’ from the options on the left-hand side on the window. Under System Properties, select Advanced tab and then choose Settings from ‘Performance’ option. From the Performance options, select the Advanced tab. Then choose Change option which is under Virtual memory. In the virtual memory window, un-check the box against ‘Automatically manage paging file size for all devices’ option. Adjust the ‘Custom size’ option on the chosen drive. Now go to Save option, and then click OK buttonto save your settings.
