    Any evidence on this? All I see is claims but no proof. Afaik swap files only gives apps more room when RAM isn't enough, so it may seem like apps run faster. If you want a real performance boost, you might just consider a hardware upgrade.

    Minimized apps does get restored faster without the "resuming....." after I did this registry edit.
    This works.
    Thanks OP !
    Much needed registry edit for 640XL .

    I am using v1.7 of Interop tools.
    I had to Interop unlock by Restore NDTKSvc option to allow for registry edits under system.
    You can write values and make them stick even if you are using the registry browser in Interop Tools v1.7
    Why I am using v1.7 is that it doesn't require any additional files to be installed.

    How about Facebook ? - does it load faster ? (well, Facebook is extremely slow to load even with faster Lumias, like 950)

    Someone should do a video with before and after this test, so we have hard proof. The more devices tested, the better.

    I have a spare Lumia 820 on RS2 on which I could test this.

    How will this affect models with more RAM?

    My 950 has 3 GB, but it doesn't have the call button in messenger. Does it really need a bigger Pagefile to enable calling?

    The instructions in the video doesn't work with the 50 series, according to Interop Unlock.

    To proceed I must have microsoft.visualstudio.ole.interop 7.1.40304.0, which I can't find..

    it does, you just dont remember installing them by now

    for x50 lumias guys you can unlock it with the latest interoptools go to settings and there's a checkbox below the unlock for older lumias, but I dont know if that is a full reg unlock and maybe you cant edit this particular entry

    the "seems faster" thing is probably coming from 2gb phones since I'm feeling like its just a placebo on the icon, but my 928 can now hold the same number of apps as my icon, I'm pretty sure it was capped at half the background apps as the icon before, and they show a quicker black screen instead of a "loading-resuming" when opening from task switcher, thats definitely an improvement, also less crashing

    pretty self explanatory really, if your phone is running out of memory all the time, increasing pagefile size will help, specially when it apparently its locked at a paltry 256mb for some reason, nothing new here, but at 2gb there's not much you can do to max that out on w10m, at least not with my usual activities, so 3gb+ guys can ignore this completely

    Unfortunately, that function doesn't work. When I tap Continue, nothing happens.

    The thing is that 3 GB isn't enough for Messenger Calls, you need a 512 MB Pagefile as well. :D

    This has been proven by more than one user, which makes me wonder it this is related to the incredibly slow startup times in FB and Messenger, bad programming.

    My messenger takes 18 seconds to start, and FB a bit more, that's ridiculous.

    Does your 18 seconds include the time to restart the app after it crashes?

    Edit: I'm not sure that I got my phone unlocked at this point...

    1024 MB Paging file does not improve Facebook or Messenger load time on my 950.

    No Messenger Call button either.

    I finally unlocked my 950 by combining info from several xda threads.

    whats really weird is a guy on reddit stating that his fb messenger now shows a voice call button with 1gb pagefile

    after playing with it for a while it seems really quirky, sometimes it will show 0 bytes as pagefile essentially telling you there's no pagefile and you can tell by looking at file explorer, setting it at 2048 and so on

    btw if your phone is old and you feel the storage has slowed down, this will probably kill it faster, using the main storage nand as ram will degrade it faster than normal, probably a reason microsoft set 256mb max for all phones

    The question is how much faster..

    Bigger pagefile is helpful in devices with less RAM; I doubt this will make the 950/950XL much faster, as they have sufficient RAM to not depend on the pagefile as much as the lower end devices.
