While working on a family member's PC, which is running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional edition, I found performance was slow while I was trying to look up some information in a tab in the Microsoft Edge browser. When I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and brought up the Windows Task Manager, clicked on the Performance tab, then clicked on Memory to view the memory utilization, I saw that most of the system's memory was being consumed, which would contribute to poor performance, if information needs to be swapped in and out of memory to disk while I'm switching between open applications. CPU utilization was also, high.
When I clicked on Details and then clicked on the "Memory (private
working set)" column header to order the processes by memory consumption,
I saw that the 7 topmost consumers of memory were
MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe processes, i.e.,
Microsoft Edge web browser processes.
