If you maximize the program later and notice that it takes a while to come back instead of instantly snapping to life, it’s being swapped back in from your page file.

You’ll see your computer’s hard disk light blinking as this happens.

Even if it’s rarely used, it’s important to have it available for situations where programs are using an unusually large amount of memory.

Having a page file won’t slow down your computer – but if your computer is using its page file a lot, you should probably get some more RAM.

If programs start to use up all your available memory, they’ll start crashing instead of being swapped out of the RAM into your page file.
