How to Check RAM on Windows 11
Learn how to check RAM on your Windows 11 PC and diagnose RAM-related issues or take an informed decision when upgrading your system.
RAM stands for Random Access Memory, it is a physical chip installed on the motherboard of your PC that stores all the temporary information to access all the programs and software stored on your PC and functions as primary storage.
Basically put, the more RAM you have, the better the ability of your PC to multitask, open programs faster, and even boot your PC faster. However, all of these things also depend on the secondary storage devices (HDDs or SSDs) but that is a discussion tabled for another time.
Knowing how to check RAM on your Windows 11 PC can come in handy in many situations such as when checking the requirement for software you wish to install, diagnosing a slow PC, or even at the time when you wish to upgrade your RAM or any storage-related hardware for a better-informed decision.
Since Window offers more than one way to check the RAM of your machine, let’s take a look at all of them.
