I have two users and would like to know;

My desk top is pretty full and I know I am pushing the limit with my RAM, until I get more Ram can I use the second user to avoid using so much RAM ?

Depends on a few things. If you do Fast User Switching, it will not help. With Fast-Switching the programs continue to run in the background. :flowers:

So, if you log off and log back in as the 2nd person, you could gain a little advantage, depending on how many programs you need to open within either user.

Considering that you can get memory at your doorstep in 2-3 days, I would wait for the additional memory. :thumbsup:

I hope this helps.
