Virtual Memory is when the space on your hard disk (where all your files sit) is used as memory.

Best to let the operating system (Microsoft Windows for example) to control it itself.

If you find that Virtual Memory is being used frequently, consider installing more Physical Memory (actual memory chips).

Oh, thanks Nick! I noticed a little window that came up and Windows seemed to be dealing with it. I wasn't sure if it was something I had done or something I needed to do!

Hope you are well and your new'ish job is going well.smile
