Computer memory

Less than a 1 minute read

In computing, memory refers to the physical devices used to store programs (sequences of instructions) or data on a temporary or permanent basis for use in a computer or other digital electronic device. The term primary memory is used for the information in physical systems which function at high-speed, as a distinction from secondary memory, which are physical devices for program and data storage which are slow to access but offer higher memory capacity.

What are memory leaks in Windows

Memory leak stands for RAM memory loss in Windows, caused by a program or an app. And when a certain app is taking more memory than it normally does, the system becomes slow, even unresponsive, and users are unable to perform even the easiest tasks in Windows.

Every running process in Windows is taking a certain amount or RAM. There are programs that are more demanding and require more RAM usage to run properly, like Google Chrome, or Adobe Photoshop, and there are less demanding programs, that actually take smaller, even unnoticeable amounts of memory. So, when a program is taking more memory than it should be taking, we call that a memory leak
