GDI handle limits on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • My work station is pretty much unusable when "using" Windows 10. It constantly runs out of memory even though it's not even using 10% of the 128GB RAM inside. This seems to be caused by Windows 10 having a lower unchangable limit for GDI handles. I have constantly crashes and graphic glitches because of it.

    Looking at the handles list on my PC these are the applications that waste far too many GDI Handles:
    • Adobe Photoshop
    • Microsoft Outlook
    • ShellExperienceHost
    • Explorer.exe
    • lsass.exe
    • audiodg.exe
    • Google Chrome
    • FireFox
    • Skype

    Entries marked in bold are from Microsoft.

    The registry editing method that helped with Windows 7 was removed by Microsoft. So, did Microsoft really cripple Windows 10 beyond repair? Do I really need to buy a mac to be able to work without constant crashes and graphic glitched caused by ancient weird artificial limits?
