Ahh! I had Screen Buffer Size set to 9999 Don't know why it was only applying to start sh.exe but lowering it to sane values created conhost with not so much memory usage. Damn! lol. Thanks for the analysis!

comment In CMD.exe, “start sh.exe” creates a conhost process which takes 700 MB memory
@DavidSchwartz I measured total ram usage in Resource Monitor and the spikes and drops seem to be similar. Also when there's 10 such conhosts, my chrome halts for a while when accessed after some time. I've seen an improvement when avoiding starting the conhosts in the way described in my question (using start cmd sh.exe instead of start sh.exe). My question is why the difference at all? Why does conhost hog so much more memory (even just virtually) when doing start sh.exe compared to doing start cmd /c sh.exe

@DavidSchwartz Task Manager shows ~300MB, Process Explorer shows ~700MB (private bytes)
