Not enough memory to run Docker

Hi, I’m a rookie user of Docker and when I installed it I realized that I do not have enough space on my computer when it is not, I have enough storage.

Attached image of the problem.

Thanks for your comments.

Right click on the Docker symbol, go to Settings--Advanced, there you can change the configuration. Maybe it’s a good idea to check in advance in the Task Manager how much free memory you actually have.

Edit: This was a sunday morning answer. Of course there is no symbol when the application doesn’t start. You can still check the available memory in the Task Manager. Docker Desktop normally needs 2 GB RAM plus a few MB for the Hyper-V stuff.

Did you find a solution for this? I am experiencing this, now, intermittently.

Thanks in advance,
