Windows 7: Page file settings

Page file settings

On 4gb memory, Win7's default setting was to let the computer manage the page file, and it leaves it at 4gb, also. Is this the optimal choice to leave it like that?

Thanks,

Depending on the computers amount of ram I usually raise or lower it. Though my main computer has 4gb and I usually just let windows manage it.

Things are fine you I assume, so I wouldn't bother changing it.

Hello Eli,

I would recommend to leave it set to the default settings as well. If it needs more space, Windows 7 will automatically adjust the size as needed.
