|Load Device Drivers into Memory (Windows 3.1/DOS)|
Category: Home > Tips and Tricks > Configuration Files > CONFIG.SYS
This setting is used to load specified device drivers into memory (or high memory).
Open the CONFIG.SYS file found in the root directory of your C: drive using Notepad or another text editor (not Microsoft Word or any word processor).
Add a new line with the text "device=xxxxxxx.sys" where 'xxxxxxx.sys' is the device to be loaded. Alternatively use "devicehigh=xxxxxxx.sys" command to cause the device to be loaded into the upper memory area instead.
These changes will take place on the next reboot.
Name: device or devicehigh|
