Memory Usage via Task Manager


Ever wondered which columns in Task Manager mean "memory in use"? I stumbled over a simple, clear definition (finally):

  • "Memory usage" = working set
  • "Virtual memory" = committed memory

First time I ever found a simple definition, and I (like many) have used Task Manager for years.

Understanding is a good thing.
