How to increase VRAM on intel hd graphics

I've already tried doing it via registry editor, but it wouldn't work for me. What else can I do?

Nothing. The graphics will allocate memory itself up to half of the available memory on your device.

 

Messing with the registry will get you into trouble.

Is there a manual way to let it take up half of the available memory?

Not that I am aware of. Instead, dynamically allocating what it needs would seem to be a better solution.

And let me add: doing so *will not* make it run any faster​.

Why not? Usually if a gpu has more vram, fps with many textures/polygons can slightly benefit from it.

No, it doesn't work that way. The driver will automatically make available whatever the application asks for. Applications will only use what resources they've ask for; so having more memory reserved will not make it any faster. In fact, it could actually slow down the system because the memory available for Windows and applications is hard limited by this reservation.
