How do i access the dialog that lets me set pagefile settings in Windows Server 2012?

In Windows 7, i would

  • Click the Start Button
  • Right-click Computer
  • Select Properties
  • Click Advanced System Settings
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Under Performance, click Settings
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Under Virtual Memory, click Change...

And there's the options.

How do i do it in Windows Server 2012?


  • It might be the same steps for Windows 8
  • Mouse only (i.e. no Windows+x, RDP)

Here is a list of all the control panel shortcuts for Server 2012:

The swap file settings are still under ControlPanel > System, apparently, and set very much like in earlier versions, if you want other than system-managed settings.

Here are details for setting the size, if you need them (I'm not including these at this point, as you probably don't need the detail):

Win+X brings up the Power User menu; you can get it several other ways, including right-clicking on the Start button (I wonder why they still call it that?) or the bottom-left corner of the screen, depending on whether you have 8 or 8.1
