Number can increase or decrease to verrry small due to selected plugins and options....
Windows pagefile used enormously by current builder, be sure your pagefile has enough space.
Tip: With default settings Windows use pagefile at C:\ , be sure you have enough space for your pagefile to expand freely.

General Advice:
Plugin interfaces talks themselves which are Very mostly easy to understand and follow without requirement to tutorials etc...
Some options requires you first get some familiar with Gena builds.
Basic Group Plugins are for advanced users, or better say for users that get used to Gena :)
Starting with checking plugins other than Basic Group (Components, Apps .... ), spend some time to check plugins and options they provide

Happy Gena Builds.   :hi:
