Fix OpenJDK Platform Binary High CPU, Memory Usage on Windows

Below are the steps to fix the OpenJDK Platform Binary High resource usage on Windows PC.

1. Kill the Gradle Daemon process

It has been seen that the Grandle Dameon tool continues to run in the background even when you have closed the editor. It is possible that the Grandle Dameon tool is consuming the resource on the behalf of OpenJDK Platform Binary.

Hence you should consider force-stopping the Grandle Dameon tool. You can do this by using Windows PowerShell by following the below steps:

1. Search for PowerShell on your Windows PC and run it as administrator.


2. In the PowerShell window, execute the following command:

grandle --stop

This will close the Grandle Dameon Tool. Wair for a while and check if the CPU and memory usage is not normal.

2. Turn off Mobile Hotspot

For some users, turning off the Mobile Hotspot has solved the issue of high resource usage on their Windows PC. Likewise, check if your PC’s Mobile Hotspot is enabled and if it is, then consider disabling it.

To disable Mobile Hotspot in Windows 11:

1. Open Windows settings by pressing Win + I on the keyboard.

2. In Settings, click on the Network & Internet tab from the left and select Mobile Hotspot from the right.

3. Finally, toggle off the Mobile Hotspot switch to turn it off.

3. Update/Reinstall GPU Drivers

Not just the flutter framework programmers but users who play games like Minecraft, also experience the OpenJDK Platform Binary high resource usage. In such cases, you should bring your attention to the GPU driver of your PC.

Consider updating it and if the update is not available reinstall the driver. Follow the below steps to do so:

1. Open the Device Manager on your PC by searching for the same in the Windows search bar.

2. In the Device Manager window, click on the Display adapter section by clicking on it and the right-click on your GPU device.

3. From the context menu that appears, select the Update driver option.

4. On the following popup window, click on the Search automatically for drivers option to let your PC automatically search for update.

5. If there is no update available, then again right-click on that GPU device and click on Uninstall device.

6. Again click on Action in the file menu and select Scan for hardware changes to get back the uninstalled driver reinstalled automatically and see if the issue gets resolved or not..

4. Scan the System Files

Corrupted system files can also cause windows programs and processes to consume high resources. So as best practice, you should consider scanning your system files if they are integrally working or not.

For this, you can use the Windows SFC and DISM scans by following the below steps.

1. Search the Command prompt and run it as administrator.

run cmd as administrator
run cmd as administrator

2. In the command prompt window, Execute the following command to run the DISM scan and wait for the scan to complete:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

3. Once done, execute the following command for SFC Scan:

sfc /scannow

After the scans are finished, restart your PC.

Tip: For a more detailed tutorial, follow our DISM, SFC & DSKCHK Scan Guide.

5. Check for Game Updates

Another best practice for games like Minecraft, players is to check for updates in their game. It is quite possible that the outdated game version is not coping with the OS and causing the OpenJDK Platform Binary high CPU and memory usage. Hence please consider updating your game for the best-possible compatibility.

6. Try reducing the Rendering Distance

Increased rendering distance in the Minecraft game has been seen causing high CPU usage on the system. If you are also playing such games with high rendering distance, then please consider reducing it.

Here’s how to reduce rendering distance in Minecraft.

1. Launch Minecraft on your PC.

2. On the launch screen, click on the Settings option to open the game settings.

3. On the settings screen, head on to the “Video” tab from the left pane.

4. Then on the right side, scroll down to the Render Distance option under the Classic section, and set its value to 20 or below.

7. Disable Integrated GPU

If your Windows PC has integrated as well as dedicated GPUs then it is possible that the game you are playing is using the integrated one.

To force it to use the dedicated GPU for graphical processing, you can disable the integrated GPU from the BIOS.

1. To do so, first, boot your Windows PC into BIOS.

2. Once you are in the BIOS of your PC, look for options like onboardintegrated video, or VGA. You will probably get these settings options under the Integrated PeripheralsOnboard Devices, or Built-in Devices.

3. Once located, turn off the option and restart the PC.

8. Perform a System Restore

By restoring your system to a previous state or point in time, this feature undoes all recent changes, including corrupted files, made to your PC. It will bring your Windows and essential system files, like drivers, installed programs, Windows Registries, and system settings, to their previous state.

It is a good option for those who were not getting the OpenJDK Platform Binary high resource consumption issue. Here’s how to use this feature:

1. Search for “System restore” in the Windows search, and click on Open under the “Create a restore point” result on the right.

If you don’t see the suggestion, then simply click “Next” to continue.
