When physical memory jumps to 80%, the RAM starts swapping itself to pagefile. How to increase this 80% threshold to say 90% ?

I have 4GB of RAM which means the swapping starts when 3.2GB of RAM is utilized and 0.8GB is not in use.

    Windows’ memory management system is not that simply. IIRC, it always swaps. This is different from Linux. – Daniel B Apr 23 '15 at 5:47

Actually swaping doesn't work the way you are thinking you can increase your virtual memory but not the threshold to 90% for swaping.

see this answer for more details.

Should I disable swap file if I have lots of RAM or should I move it to a virtual RAM drive?
