When talking about computers, there are two types of memory ROM (Read Only Memory) & RAM (Random Access Memory). Where ROM or Hard Disk is the permanent storage for your files and data, RAM is temporary, and it holds the data of the currently running programs.
Each program that runs on the system consumes memory and whenever it falls short, the desired programs may not run, open slowly, or might open but not with complete data. Also, the system starts acting sluggish and crashes, hang-ups, and sudden shutdowns are encountered quite often.
One solution to this problem is to add more physical RAM, but this is not feasible for all. Hence, the better solution to this problem is to manage memory allocation or can say optimize RAM.
But optimizing memory on Windows 11 & 10 manually is not easy. This is when Memory Optimizer offered by the PC Optimizer Advanced System Optimizer comes to play.
What is Memory Optimizer Windows 10?
Memory Optimizer, in Advanced System Optimizer, is a sophisticated, easy, and efficient memory management utility. It helps the user to manage the existing limited memory space in a very resourceful manner. Also, it analyzes the current state of the system memory and frees up memory for the new program. This means it swaps new programs with the ones lying unused yet consuming memory.
Note: To free up memory for the new programs the Windows 11 & 10 RAM optimization is performed in the background.
How does memory Optimizer work?
Memory Optimizer is very easy to use and it works with the finest optimization technology that takes care of both physical and virtual memory.
The first screen through a graph gives an overview of the current memory status where it talks about:
- Total Memory on the system
- Available Memory
- Used Memory
- System Cache
- Peak Cache
- Available Page File
When you click the “Optimize Now” button, the memory optimization process starts and within minutes, Windows 10 RAM optimization takes place freeing up unused memory resources thus making maximum space available for other programs to load and launch. This, memory optimization, takes care of unresponsive applications and programs currently running.
Note: To let the process of RAM optimization on Windows 10 take place, we recommend closing all the files and applications in use.
The left panel shows two setting options for Memory Optimizer:
b). Auto Optimize
Under this category there are three options:
- Manual Optimization – This option via the slider lets you set the amount of memory to be freed during manual memory optimization.
Note: If a lesser amount of memory is specified and vice versa, the optimization will be faster. However, if a higher amount is specified, Memory Optimizer for Windows 10 will take longer to free up that much memory space.
- Startup and Optimization – Using this option provided by Memory Optimizer you can clear the clipboard data to free more memory.
- Load Memory Optimizer automatically on Windows startup
On checking this option, Windows 10 RAM optimization automatically loads each time during Windows startup. The application runs in the background to continuously supervise the existing memory status, settings and accordingly optimizes it whenever, wherever necessary. It runs in the minimized form in the system tray and can be maximized by double-clicking it.
- Free more memory by clearing the clipboard data (not recommended)
When this option is checked, Memory Optimizer during the optimization process clears the clipboard data. This option is not recommended because clearing data from the clipboard can lead to the loss of critical data. Hence, should remain unchecked during memory optimization.
- Memory Graph and Update Speed – This option lets you set the memory update speed. There are four levels of speed Fast, Medium, Normal and Slow, out of which only one can be chosen.
Once the settings are reset as per your needs and preferences, you may click on the “Save settings” button to apply all the changes done.
What is Auto Optimization?
Three options are displayed under Auto-optimize Settings.
- Enable Auto Optimization – As the name signifies this option helps enable and disable auto-optimization. When enabled, the Memory optimizer automatically starts optimizing memory when the free space available falls below a specified level. This takes place in the background.
- Automatic Memory Optimization – This option helps set a certain volume of free memory space below which Memory Optimizer auto-starts memory optimization.
- Automatically Optimize when free memory falls below
While working on the system, we don’t realize that the memory space is being increasingly used up. Eventually, the free memory space gets exhausted and becomes tedious to work further.
Memory Optimizer allows adjusting the settings to a certain volume of free memory space so that memory optimization automatically takes place when available memory free space comes below that specified level.
- Try to free additional:
You can instruct Memory Optimizer to try to free up additional memory space when memory is being optimized. You may specify the volume under this section.
- Processor Usage Protection – This Intelligent Optimization option enables the processor load (CPU) and if any currently running application is putting a huge load on the processor, the Memory Optimizer automatically halts memory optimization to avoid slowing down the system.
Once the settings are reset as per your needs and preferences, click on the “Save settings” button to apply all the changes done.
On minimizing the application window, it still executes its job from the system tray. It continuously supervises and periodically optimizes memory resources so that they never fall short while launching important programs.
Note: When you right-click on the system tray icon, the context menu shows four options.
Help – opens the help file.
Show Main Windows – helps restore the application to the maximized state.
Optimize Now – starts the optimization process.
Exit – close the application and remove it from the system tray.
