I was wondering if anyone could recommend a solution for my problem. While working, I'm constantly opening and closing documents for Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, etc. Frequently, I close an entire program because I don't have any more documents opened for the moment.
But, a few minutes later, I'll have to open a document in that program. Since the program is restarting, it takes a while for the document to open up. (I've got an i7.) I hate the wait!
Is there a way to keep a program constantly running in the background so that documents can be opened quickly?
I was thinking of using a RAMDisk if I can't do the above. That way everything is kept in RAM so programs will move the same speed as if the program was already open.
I tried using RAMDisk programs but I couldn't get any of them to work. (SoftPerfect RAM Disk and Dataram RAMDisk) I got about 64 gigs of RAM to try to pull off this little project. Unfortunately, it's just that I couldn't get the programs to work. They are pretty old and stale. It seems all RAMDisk programs are.
Is there anything that you, guys suggest? Is there a RAMDisk that you suggest? Or, is there some way to keep the Acrobat, Word, and Excel application constantly opened in memory, even if there is no document opened?
