    Hi all,

    I am using the Edge browser frequently (I just think it works easy) but recently I noticed it really consumes memory. Just now I even got a message telling me that I needed to take some action because it was almost using 100% (of 8 GB!)

    I therefore checked Task Manager and found out Edge is really using a lot of memory, see the picture below.

    At this specific moment I was using around 15 tabs in Edge, which is not extremely much (I think...) I can end this task in the manager without any problem and Edge doesn't get shut down. After ending this task, it slowly starts growing again till a certain point and it starts all over again.

    Does anybody experience this same problem, know what the cause is and maybe have a solution? I would be very gratefull!

    Well, you do have 15 tabs open after all and judging by the size quite "hefty" tabs as well. If you try with firefox, you will get similar results :).

    I had the same issue of edge using almost 5GB of RAM but on one site only, one tab only. That was onedrive where I was uploading files. The RAM would just keep on rising. Support couldn't help at that time.
