Fix high memory usage in Windows Window Manager
DWM or Windows Window Manager appears in Task Manager and it is a very important system process that manages the visual effects of the system. It works all the time and in theory, it should consume little memory. However, in case it is not, we will have to do the following.

Next, we will have to search for “Windows Explorer” or “Explorer” and restart it.
Check Graphics Drivers to Reduce Windows Manager Memory Usage
Obviously the outdated graphics drivers they can cause a great deal of trouble with the dwm.exe process. So the ideal is to update the graphics driver that could be causing problems with it.
To do this, we press “Windows” and we are going to write “Device Manager”. Next, we expand the option of “Display adapters”. We will right click on the integrated graphics card and select “Update driver”.
We will have to search online for driver updates. We can even enter the manufacturer’s website and download them from their official site. Although this will depend on your graph.
In case you updated the drivers recently and since then, you have experienced failures, then the ideal is to reverse it. For this, in the same “Device Manager” we double click on the graphics card.
A new window opens and we will have to go to the “Driver” tab, then we will click on “Revert driver” or “Uninstall updates”. In case of having a GPU or external card installed, we will do the same.
