8. Uncheck  “Automatically manage paging file size for all drivers”.

9. Select your Windows installation drive.

10. Select Custom Size and Fill in the Maximum and Minimum size. Even though I use 6000 MB for both I would recommend the size I have mentioned for different Windows Versions for you to follow.

Windows XP: Max-1600 MB, Min:- 512 MB to 1024 MB

Windows Vista/7: Max-3500 MB, Min:- 1024 MB to 3500 MB

Windows 8:- Max-8000 MB, Min:-3500 MB to 6000 MB

NOTE:- THE AMOUNT OF VIRTUAL MEMORY IS ACTUALLY TAKEN FROM YOUR HDD SO BE ECONOMICAL IF YOU WANT TO SAVE SPACE MINE HAS 444 GB FOR THE WINDOWS DRIVE SO I USE 6000 MB CHOOSE YOUR SIZE ACCORDING TO YOUR HDD SPACE AVAILABLE.

11. Select OK Close all Programs and then Restart your system.

That’s it folks next time when you reboot you will get a faster system.
