hello, i am using the newest download of the free,personal edition, 7.2.7

i have very small code sample, 6-10 lines, very basic and the memory usage seems very high (image enclosed)

Wing does take about that much memory, starting at about 200MB or more. It depends on your Python installation, what code you have in your project, and how much Python code is found and analyzed.

the code you see in the snapshot is the code, 4 lines 325K of memory

That does seem high... I just checked and Wing Pro on Windows 10 is only using 115MB. It may be a result of whatever is in the other editor you have open, or analysis of code that is found on your Python Path or installed into the Python you are using. Is it less if you restart Wing or does it start right away at 325MB of memory?
