How to Increase Program Memory in Windows Mobile


Pocket PC devices running versions of Windows Mobile prior to Windows Mobile 5 use a non-persistent internal memory as temporary storage for running programs. Because this memory is very fast, the operating system also allows you to use it to store your data. The data is retained as long as the battery holds a charge. However, the memory you allocate for storage cannot be used for running programs. If you attempt to launch a program and are confronted with an "out of memory" error, check your device's memory allocation to see if you need to allocate more memory to programs.

Things You'll Need

  • Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition or earlier
  • Tap the "Start" button, and select "Settings" from the drop-down that appears.

  • Tap the "System" tab at the bottom of the "Settings" window.

  • Tap the "Memory" icon.

  • Drag the slider bar completely to the right to allocate all memory to running programs.

  • Tap the "OK" button in the upper right corner of the screen.

Tips & Warnings

  • Windows Mobile versions after Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition do not allow the user to manually adjust program memory. This is because the memory design for devices running Windows Mobile 5 and later utilize dedicated RAM that cannot be used for persistent data storage.
