    the swap file is another word for virtual memory. It's what it was referred to back in the early 9x days. We still keep that name in fact I sitll think that's what it actually is. Anyway its what windows uses to say...."swap" data back and forth between ram and hdd. It sorta caches away information for quick access later. In a way.

    You can mess with its settings by doing a properties on my computer going to advanced> then settings under perofrmance> then advanced again and finally........hit the button "change" here there are literally millions of different settings that you can do lol.......
