Can SWAP be resized if more RAM is added?

Hello,

If more RAM is added to a desktop or laptop, can the SWAP area be resized? Is this useful or needed? Using SSD's or HHD's?

Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit.

Thanks.

Re: Making a choice apply to all folders? LibreOffice extensions?

Thank you Cosmo.

Can the processes for setting folder options be different with each distribution of Linux? And each desktop environment? So XFCE is different than Cinnamon? Or Antergos?

Re: LMMS not showing up in Menu.

Not in usr/bin

Nemo search bar? In the Menu at the top? Nothing. Sound and Video, nothing.

Maybe they have not updated something with a Level 4 update to the kernel?
