Hi,

Have 16Gb of Ram.  What are the best values for Virtual Memory on Win 10:

Seen a RANGE of suggestions online.

Most common Google result is this:

How to calculate Windows 10 Virtual Memory / Paging File
There is a formula for calculating the correct pagefile size. The Initial size is one and a half (1.5) x the amount of total system memory. The Maximum size is three (3) x the initial size. So let's say you have 4 GB (1 GB = 1,024 MB x 4 = 4,096 MB) of memory. The initial size would be 1.5 x 4,096 = 6,144 MB and the maximum size would be 3 x 6,144 = 18,432 MB.

Do you agree?  If yes, just to help me check my math - what would be the values I would input?

Initial Size:
Maximum:

And, anything ELSE I should be selectin at that dialogue box?

Sincerely,

OT
