How To Create Virtual RAM in Windows

We can create Virtual RAM in windows by using the space available on the Hard drive. The virtual RAM or Page File is necessary for your processor to perform any function when your physical RAM is full or busy performing other operations. By default, your system automaticaly allocates some memory as virutal RAM to use in case of emergencies. In case it doesn’t, you can manually set some memory from your hard drive.
