Should one VS process be using 3+ gigabytes of memory? I'm thinking no... RRS feed

    I am running Visual Studio 2015 RTM on Windows 7 Ultimate. Task Manager shows 3+ gigabytes used for one process. Is this normal, possible memory leak, should I be concerned, should anybody be concerned? Well, I am. That's why I felt I should write this post.

    Task Manager

    You can use Devenv.exe /SafeMode to starts Visual Studio in safe mode, loading only the default environment and services

    Or you can also try Devenv /ResetSettings to restore Visual Studio default settings. Optionally resets the settings to the specified .vssettings file.

    Please let me know if you need any help.

    With regards,
