Memory leak in Windows 11 File Explorer takes user’s RAM hostage

Memory leaks are nothing new for Windows users. Programs will use more RAM than expected from time to time, but for those who are thinking about switching to Windows 11 tomorrow, there are a few things to keep in mind, because you may face memory leaks caused by the operating system itself File Manager.

If you don’t know that memory leaks are a concept, they are essentially what happens when a process running on your PC refuses to release the cache space allocated to it. Sometimes, even a long time after the program window is closed, the RAM will not be released, and a large amount of memory will cause the machine to slow down, leading to various problems, and in extreme cases, it will become unresponsive.
