How to allocate more RAM to Java

We have already shown how to allocate more RAM in Mincraft. Since Minecraft also works with Java, you might already know the necessary command. But how can you generally assign Ram to Java under Windows 10? Actually, it’s quite simple, but even those who know the menus well may never have stumbled across the setting options for Java. Today we want to change that and show you exactly how you can assign more RAM to Java.

Know the necessary arguments for Java:

To tell Java what you want, you must use so-called arguments. These are short strings of commands that include the amount of RAM you allocate to Java. You can easily find them on the internet. But we will explain what you need to know about RAM. With this basic knowledge you can then modify the commands on your own.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Type “Control Panel” in the search bar below and click on it
  • Click on “Programs” and “Java
  • Switch to the Java tab and select the “View” item
  • In the column “Runtime parameters” you now have to enter the corresponding argument
  • Arguments are as follows: -Xmx2048m (stands for 2048MB memory = 2GB)
  • For a full GB of memory you can abbreviate this as follows: -Xmx2g
  • Enter the values you want and click “OK” and “Apply”
  • Done!

Entering the data is child’s play with the appropriate prior knowledge. However, you should make sure that you still set the value too high. If the rest of the system does not have enough memory available, this can cause Windows to jerk. Finding the right value is a completely different matter. We wish you good luck with the right setting!
