Pocket PC Tips and Tricks -- Free Memory

By: The Authors of Pocket PC Tips and Tricks

One of the main reasons why your Pocket PC begins running more slowly is the persistence of applications and programs running in the background. As a result, the shutting down of those unnecessary applications becomes a necessary task to running a problem-free Pocket PC. (continued...)

The Windows Mobile platform uses a feature called Smart Minimize that actually leaves the program running in the background after you click on the X in the upper right hand corner.

One of the largest programs that consumes memory is ActiveSync, which runs in the background once you synch your Pocket PC with your computer. There are several ways you can shut down this application.

The most common way is to go to Start -> Settings -> System - > Memory and selecting the grey Running Programs tab. This will open up a majority of applications running on your Pocket PC.

By removing large applications from memory when not in use, you will be providing yourself with more space for necessary applications and will potentially improve the overall performance of your device.
