How to increase virtual memory in Windows 10?

How do I increase virtual memory on a Windows 10 PC?
To adjust your virtual memory settings click the Start (Windows) button > Settings. In the search type in performance, and select Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows from the search results. In Performance Options click the Advanced tab. Click Change under Virtual memory section. Check the Recommended and the Currently allocated settings at the bottom. Uncheck the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives (at the top), which will allow you to set the Custom size. You can either go with the Recommended size, or multiply you physical RAM in MB by 1.5 and set that for both Initial size and Maximum size (this will give you the most out of you virtual memory settings). Once done click OK and Apply.
