The final version of Windows 11 suffers from a memory leak

Published

on

The final version of Windows 11, which launched earlier this week, has discovered a memory leak issue in File Explorer or File Manager, according to the source.

A memory leak in Windows occurs when the PC is unable to reclaim cached space. In other words, it does not release RAM even after closing the program that originally used RAM. This, in turn, causes the RAM to overflow, which can slow down your computer or even freeze in some cases. A memory leak in the file manager, discovered a couple of months earlier in Windows 11 Insider Preview, made its way into the final build.

To reproduce the problem, you can simply go to the Task Manager and sort the processes by maximum memory usage, and then start running File Explorer (Win + E). After that, the file manager will quickly rise to the top of this list. As of now, the company has not yet officially acknowledged this issue, so it is unknown if a fix is ​​in the works. Restarting the Windows Explorer process manually will clear the cache.

Users of systems that are low on RAM and who rarely restart their PCs can run into serious problems if this memory leak problem is not addressed.

One of the users managed to install Windows 11 on ARM on Mi 6. Of course, the system does not work super fast (the OS loads for more than a minute, some menus inside the OS itself take several seconds to load), but in general, Windows 11 on Mi 6 is quite efficient.
