Hi

From Start Menu --> Open Control Panel
From the various icons listed, open --> System.
System Properties window will open.
Select "Advanced" tab from this.
From the Advanced tab Click the Performance--Settings button

Again from the Performance Options window that just opened select the advanced tab
From this Click the Change Button for Virtual Memory.

A new window for Virtual Memory opens
Select the partition on which your OS is installed [windows]
Then click the Custom Size --> radio button
The text box infront of Cutom Size will be active.
Enter the size as you wish but usually virtual memory is double the amount of RAM on your system.

eg.. If you have 1gb RAM then virtual memory can be less than or equal to 2gb.
But make sure your HDD has enough space to accomodate the virtual memory.

Memory is used up by excel


I don't think you can. It's a real resource hog especially if youre using 2010/13. See below.

Excel 2003 is officially limited to 1 Gigabyte (GB) of memory.
This limit appears to be a limit on the working set memory used by the Excel process, which is the memory reported by Windows Task Manager.
Although Excel 2003 has a substantially increased memory capacity, many of the individual specific memory limits listed below have not changed in Excel 2003.

Excel 2007 is limited to 2 Gigabytes of memory for the Excel process under Windows XP/Vista (Windows memory limit).
This 2 Gigabyte limit is a limit on the Virtual Memory address space. Virtual memory used by a process is larger than the working set memory reported by Windows Task Manager, so the amount of useable memory under Excel 2007 is considerably less than twice that of Excel 2003.
Because Excel 2007 (Excel12) also requires more memory to store the indexes to the increased number of rows and columns you may not be able to load larger workbooks under Excel 2007 than was possible under Excel 2003. Memory Fragmentation may also mean that it is difficult to make use of all of the available 2 GB of virtual memory.

Many of the individual memory limits listed below have been removed in Excel 2007.

Excel 2010 is available in 2 versions: 32-bit (2 Gigabytes of virtual memory) and 64-bit (8-Terabytes (which is 8000 Gigabytes of virtual memory)).
The 32-bit version has the same memory limits as Excel 2007, but the 64-bit version, when used with a 64-bit Windows operating system, will have extremely large memory limits.
Note that the different versions of Windows Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit support differing amounts of RAM.

I don't wish to sound rude but if you don't know how to do this, you prolly should just let windows continue managing it. A few wrong keystrokes can have major repurcussions
