  1. Select the “Custome size” and  enter a new value for the size of the new paging file. Enter a value larger than the current paging file size in the “Maximum Size” field (enter the value in megabytes). Click the Set button and then OK.
  2. Restart the computer for the new “Virtual Memory” settings to take effect. The Windows Clipboard now stores more data when copying and pasting between applications.
