Part III: Configuring Windows NT Worksta... > Managing Memory, Multitasking, and S...

Chapter 6. Managing Memory, Multitasking, and System Options

by Paul Sanna

One of the advantages Windows NT has over non-graphical user interface operating systems is the ease in which you can manage complex options for the entire operating system. Rather than having to identify and then input arcane commands and difficult syntax to manage options such as memory management and startup configurations, Windows NT enables you to just point and click. This isn't to suggest, however, that Windows NT has a less than robust set of system options. Directly from a dialog box, you can control the size of virtual memory swap files, multitasking priorities, and more. This chapter presents these types of options to you, explaining their significance and then providing you with advice for configuring them.
