How to Check Microsoft Edge Memory Usage

Find out using your browser’s task manager

You should know

  • Open Windows Task Manager with keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Esc Check the memory usage of Edge.
  • Use keyboard shortcuts Shift + Esc Open your browser’s Task Manager in Edge.
  • Choose Final process Close the tab or process that indicates high memory usage.

This article describes how to open your browser’s Task Manager in Microsoft Edge to check for malicious processes. However, first, use Windows Task Manager to see if your computer is slowing down due to a high memory usage, edge or another program.

Check Microsoft Edge memory usage using Windows Task Manager

Windows Task Manager informs you about various processes running concurrently on your computer. You can quickly see if your Edge browser is using a resource or another program. For memory-intensive events, use Windows Task Manager first, then Edge’s Browser Task Manager.

Check the memory usage of each active process to see if Microsoft Edge is consuming a higher percentage.

If Edge is a problem, the task manager of the browser itself can help identify which process is consuming the most memory.

Check memory usage using Task Manager in Microsoft Edge browser

All Chromium browsers have a task manager. Microsoft Edge is no exception. The Browser Task Manager helps you identify tabs, extensions, or background processes that are using your computer’s memory, CPU, or network bandwidth. The browser’s task manager allows you to easily control various processes running in the background and kill them if needed.

Start Microsoft Edge.

Select the ellipsis (three dots) button in the upper right corner of the Edge browser. In the drop-down menu, Other Tools> Browser Task Manager..

Task Manager shows all the processes running in your browser. Edge displays real-time data for four transaction types in four columns. Click on any column header to sort the transactions by resource usage.

  • memory: This is the amount of memory (in kilobytes) used by each process or tab.
  • processor: It shows the percentage of total processing power that the tab or process is getting from the CPU of the PC.
  • Communication network: It indicates the amount of network bandwidth used by the jump or process, in bytes per second or kilobytes per second. Tabs with video or audio functioning gain a more substantial share.
  • Transaction ID: It shows the process ID of the tab or process. Each browser tab, extension and renderer runs as a different process. They are separated from each other and the PID can identify the process and fix the problem in any tab.

Right-click anywhere in the column header to see detailed data about the browser action. Select an action from the list. For example, if Edge uses a graphics processing unit to accelerate the rendering of web pages, it consumes more GPU memory.

Recommended memory usage for various Edge processes

Microsoft Edge has summarized the optimal memory usage for the various processes in a blog post. The following are recommendations and a description of the metrics that browsers use to benchmark performance.

  • Browser action: 400MB.
  • Manufacturer’s action: 500MB.
  • Subframe process: 75MB.
  • GPU process: 1.75 GB
  • Auxiliary process: 30 MB
  • Expansion and addition operations: 15-0 MB

You can solve the problem with the highest memory usage by closing the problematic tab. Close the Memory Power tab or remove the extension. Open your browser’s Task Manager again to see if your memory usage is stable. In that case, the problem was with the closed tab or the uninstalled extension.

How to Check Microsoft Edge Memory Usage

Use the Browser Task Manager to find out

What to Know
Open Windows Task Manager with keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Esc and check memory usage for Edge.
Use keyboard shortcut Shift + Esc to open the Browser Task Manager in Edge.
Select End process to close any tab or process that is showing high memory usage.

This article explains how to open the Browser Task Manager in Microsoft Edge and check for any rogue processes. But first, use the Windows Task Manager to see if Edge is the cause of high memory usage or any other program causing the slowdown on your computer.

Use Windows Task Manager to Check Microsoft Edge Memory Usage

The Windows Task Manager tells you about the different processes running concurrently on your PC. You can tell immediately if the Edge browser is using up the resources or some other program. Use the Windows Task Manager first and then the Browser Task Manager in Edge during high memory usage events.

Open Task Manager with keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Esc. Alternatively, type “Task Manager” in the Windows Search bar and select the result.

On the Processes tab, the Memory column lists all active processes and the amount of memory they are using. Tap on the column header to arrange it in descending or ascending order.

If the Memory column isn’t visible in the Task Manager’s minimized view, select More details on the bottom of the Task Manager window to expand the view.

Check the memory usage of each active process and see if Microsoft Edge is consuming a higher percentage.

When Edge is the problem, the browser’s own task manager can help spot the process that is consuming most of the memory. 

Use Microsoft Edge Browser Task Manager to Check Memory Usage

All Chromium browsers have Task Managers. Microsoft Edge is no different. The Browser Task Manager can help you pinpoint any tab, extension, or background process that’s hogging the PC’s memory, processor, or network bandwidth. The Browser Task Manager makes it easy to control the different processes running in the background and kill them if necessary.  

Launch Microsoft Edge.

Select the ellipses button (three dots) on the upper-right corner of the Edge browser. From the dropdown menu, select More tools > Browser task manager.

To use a keyboard shortcut, press Shift + Esc to open the Browser Task Manager.

The Task Manager displays every running process on the browser.  Edge shows the real-time data for four process types in four columns. Click any column header to sort the processes by their resource usage. 

Memory: This is the amount of memory each process or tab is using in kilobytes.
CPU: This shows the percentage of your total processing power a tab or process is drawing from the PC’s CPU.
Network: This shows the amount of network bandwidth used by the tab or process in bytes or kilobytes per second. Any tab with running video or audio will grab a more significant share.
Process ID: This shows the process ID of the tab or process. Each browser tab, extensions, renderers run as distinct processes. They are sandboxed from one another, and you can identify the process by their PID and troubleshoot any problems in one of the tabs.

To see more data on any browser process, right-click anywhere on the column header. Select the process from the list. For instance, GPU memory consumption will be high when Edge uses the graphics processing unit to accelerate webpage rendering. 

To close any unwanted process or tab that is hogging resources, locate the specific task in the list and select End process. 

Recommended Memory Usage for Different Processes in Edge

Microsoft Edge outlines the optimum memory usage of different processes in a blog post. Here are their recommendations with explanations on the metrics the browser uses to benchmark performance:

Browser process: 400 MB. 
Renderer process: 500 MB. 
Subframe process: 75 MB. 
GPU Process: 1.75GB
Utility process: 30 MB
Extension process and plug-in processes: 15-0 MB

You can solve most high memory usage problems by terminating the offending tab. Close the tab that’s eating into the memory or uninstall the extension. Open the browser task manager again to see if the memory usage has stabilized. If it has, then the problem was with the closed tab or the uninstalled extension.
