Have you ever stopped to think what is the maximum capacity of RAM that we can use on a computer with Windows operating system.

Windows is the most popular operating system and widely used all over the world, from personal computers to supercomputers.

Microsoft's system was first introduced on the market in November 20, 1985 as a graphical interface for MS-DOS in response to other systems that were also using graphical user interfaces (GUIs). In a very short period of time Windows has dominated the personal computer market with over 90% Market share. To this day it is still the most widely used system, even with the entry of competitors such as Mac OS and Linux.

Many when purchasing a new computer or notebook need to increase the amount of RAM memory by adding memory modules to make the operating system more fluid and no crashes due to demanding programs that consume more and more memory.
