Hi Jacinta, Windows usually manaes your "swap file" quite well. The swap file grows and shrinks in size depending on what you (your computer) need. It will however, depend on the amount of RAM (random access memory) you have installed in your computer. The more RAM you have, the smaller a swap file you will need. One solution, if you have two hard drives in your computer (not just one hard drive partioned) is to move the swap file to that second hard drive. If you do not use this second drive a great deal and have lots of space on it, moving the swap file to there can considerably speed up your computer. The reason this happens, is that while you are accessing a program and Windows is busy shuffling files back and forth to the swap file, the drive does find it difficult to keep hopping back and forth between what you are working on and your swap file, if it is on the same drive. If it (swap file) is on another drive, it (your main drive) can let that drive do all the swapping and get on with seeking all the things you need. Thus you will notice an improvement in the performance.
