Solidworks 2019 is using very little of the resources my computer has available

When I am running local assemblies and non-local (PDM), many tasks are taking a long time to run.

My computer's specs are:

Intel 8750H 6 core @ 2.2 GHz

Nvidia Quadro P2000

32GB ram



Yet, when trying to perform simple tasks such as removing appearances, it takes a very long time to complete.


As detailed in the snip I've provided, it's not that my computer has a lack of power for what I'm doing, but rather Solidworks 2019 is not utilizing all of the resources available.


For every different task I do where SW freezes and gives me this window, the program states its using 7% CPU and 2.2GB of ram (despite the fact I have 32GB).


Is there a way I can increase this processing/ram limit? It is getting very frustrating with my larger assemblies.
