Memories are made of this

Having spent a further three hours last night going through my posts and reducing the size of some of the unrealised gi-normous photos I had copied into my blog, I feel I have made progress.
This morning, I went through my pictures, putting the older ones I wanted to keep on a key. The memory used in my laptop is now 42% (though it was only 46% when I started) so it was a good exercise.

However, that doesn’t seem to be all the problem. Together we’ve gone through how my machine is set up and got rid of programs I don’t use and things that had snuck in somehow. I was able to see that when I view posts or graphics, the memory is eaten up, but what didn’t happen was that it didn’t revert back to ‘normal’ when those posts were closed.
Not realising that, I had been opening up separate tabs and had several things going on whilst I was contentedly working or reading posts from the bloggers I follow. My little laptop was never designed for that.

Now that I know what’s going on and understand the basics if not the mechanics, I can modify the way I work and view. It should help anyway. The good news is that when I turn my machine off, everything shuts down and sets back to normal.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s good. Multiple tabs do use the memory and space in the computer.
