How to Check Your RAM Amount, Type, and Speed on Windows 11



Your Computer System’s memory, or RAM, is crucial for any PC running Windows 11. Too little RAM and your PC might be slow, so more RAM is almost always better. In this article, we will take a look at how to check how much RAM your system has (and what type and speed it is) in Windows 11. Here’s how:

How to Check Your RAM Amount, Type, and Speed on Windows 11

The simple and easy way to find out the RAM amount of your Windows 11 PC is through the Windows Settings. First, open the Settings by pressing the keyboard shortcuts Windows + I to launch it quickly. Once you get to the Settings window, select “System” and then scroll down a bit and click on “About.”  Once you get to the About screen, expand the “Device Specifications” section at the top of the list by clicking it. Just below that, you’ll see how much RAM your PC has in the “Installed RAM” section. (“4.00 GB” in our example.)

Next, to check the type and speed of your PC’s RAM, Windows Task Manager is the best option to use. To do so, click on the Window search icon on the taskbar and type “Task Manager,” and open the results.

Once you get to the Task Manager, click the “Performance” tab at the top, then select “Memory” in the sidebar. On the Memory information screen, look in the upper-right corner of the window. There, you’ll see the total RAM capacity of your PC (such as “4.00 GB,” for example). And at the bottom, you will see the speed and type of memory you have installed. 

Once you’re done, close the Task Manager. You can check any time you need to see what kind of RAM you’re running. That’s it, share your feedback here in the comment section below to let us know if it works for you. Good luck!
