I use Android Studio + Emulator + Firefox + Thunderbird on an older AMD A10 on Ubuntu Linux and the whole thing seldom goes over 6GB of ram.
Sometimes I have IntelliJ open at the same time all well under 8GB.
I guess there's something in your windows.
Check this out. I was just browsing through a folder and I played an mp4 file and the video played and then out of nowhere I got this message*:
"Because you're accessing sensitive info, you need to verify your password." https://i.stack.imgur.com/vbbGC.png[^]
I couldn't even tell what app was causing this to appear. It seems to be the app that is playing the mp4 video. Crazy, microsoft. Really crazy.
I did not enter my password and the app played the video and everything else works the same. Seems so fake!
It may be the video player: some of them try to access metadata online I think.
Again, I believe you are correct.
Which player were you using?
That was part of the craziness. It was the built-in win10 one I think?
Can't really tell. There is nothing in the Store App that lets me know what is running. I do see "Movies & TV" so I think that is what it is called.
The additionally weird thing is that I've played the video a number of times again to see if the popup would come back and it didn't.
I don’t have OneDrive as a default save location on my machine.
I wouldn’t ever want that really.
However, it is possible that the recent big update (1903 recently installed on my machine) May have changed something. However, I checked and that file is in my Downloads directory.
How very nice of them to add such an intrusive "feature" (which I'll bet no-one asked for, and which sends reams of personal information to their servers), instead of fixing the 1.3 Billion bugs in the OS.

because my mind wandered to weird places regarding the lockpicking comments and because i recently saw an article here on doing some less than upstanding things to exploit software vulnerabilities - the kind that bypass DEP.
so part of me is wondering if i should post it - if i can find the source. i actually made it as part of a larger search engine scraping tool so if i gutted the google specific bits i could legally speaking "sanitize it"
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
I don't see how or why that should violate google's search tos, given that it's just a command-line search, and not automated.
Calling it repeatedly from a shell with an input file of search terms would be considered "automated", but calling a browser repeatedly from a shell with an input file of search terms would be exactly the same thing, so its being a command-line tool makes no difference whatsoever.

Maybe because they probably can't make so much business if there is many people using it?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
In fact, I am repleter than a very replete thing. No mushrooms, so I just layered as much bacon into a 30 inch pan as I possibly could. Also, no hash-browns, as I couldn't be arsed with them. As I am not allowed to cook chips in HER kitchen*, I did fried potato cubes in the frying pan. They need constant attention to turn them, but this is a good thing, as I can multi-task it with drinking beer - not so hard when you get the hang of it.
All the rest is as advertised by a solid English brunch.
* Quite how it became HER kitchen, I am not terribly sure, as I recall paying for everything from the house it's in to the peppercorns in the peppermill.
I cheat: Sausage, bacon, black pudding are under the grill, eggs in a fry pan. Toast in the toaster (obviously); mushrooms, beans, and tomatoes in separate packs in the Sous Vide at 79C. Hash browns prepared earlier, go in the Heska (a Chinese "pizza cooker" that can't cook pizza to save its life but does very well with tortillas, pancakes, and near dry-fry potato objects)
Resulting washing up: plates, cutlery, one fry pan, and the grill pan (lined with foil to make that easier)
Means I only use one ring instead of four+, and only have to keep an eye on the grill instead of stirring multiple pans, until the eggs go in, and they are two minutes with a light shake every now and then.

Baked beans in a pot in the microwave and an empty covered plate on the pop-up rack on the toaster. Cook the potato cubes first in the frying pan, and then transfer to heated plate. Chuck all the meat products into the frying pan, and do them together, except the bacon which is done next to last. As the sausages, burgers, and kidneys are done, place on the heated plate and cook the bacon and put on the plate, microwave the beans and put a couple of eggs in the pan and your done.
One dirty pan, one dirty plate, and one microwave pot to wash up. One caveat - the pop-up rack and covered plate on the toaster can very, very hot, and actually start to recook the food, and so needs careful managing - together with drinking beer, of course, in the fully approved multi-tasking method.
