clear-system-memorySometimes Windows starts responding slow if you have been working for a long time. Running multiple applications simultaneously for long periods leads to a gradual decrease in system performance over time. Often the only option is a restart. Even if you close the application in the Task Manager, the tasks/threads associated with the application are not released completely, depleting the systems memory resources making the system unstable and sluggish. Here is how you can clear up system memory to boost up computer performance. The following tip is designed to offer fast relief.

  • Right-click on your desktop and select New -> Shortcut
  • In the text box enter the command
    %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks
  • Click Next. In the next screen, name the shortcut: for example, Clear Memory
  • Click on Finish

Whenever you feel that the system is sluggish you can double click on this shortcut and it will take care of the idle tasks by removing them. This can be used before you resort to restarting/rebooting the system.
