    until now the only way I could calm down the runtime broker is not to minimizing the groove music app. It just shows up when I use groove music app and if I don't minimize it then no problem but if I minimize the app the runtime broker will eat my cpu frequently. None of the other solutions worked for me.

    I made an account just to share my solution. As others noted, Runtime Broker controls app permissions from many different processes, so everyone is getting different reasons why it is going haywire. For myself, it seems to be when I access folders with thousands of files and then try to use a Microsoft Store App to view or edit them, RB eats up as much as 95% of my CPU. Opening one or two is fine, but if I try to quickly scan through multiple files, whatever process RB is running in the background gets repeated for each item I scan through. I suspect it is adjusting the indexing to those files.

    I can confirm that it does NOT exhibit this behavior with fewer files. I tested with 12 files in a folder. RB took approx. 1.4GB memory on opening the first file, then released it. No matter how many times I opened other files, RB did not consume resources again. So I'm convinced it has something to do with having an extremely large file index, and opening a Microsoft Store App.

    My solution, unfortunately, is to just not use Microsoft Store Apps. Downloading an alternate file viewer that does not rely on RB, I have experienced no problems whatsoever. Obviously this is a workaround and does not actually solve the problem, but the fault seems to be with how MS is handling a large file index, so as long as you're using Microsoft Store Apps with extremely full folders, you're going to have this problem.

    Runtimebroker is a process on windows which determines that the apps we got from window store typically known as metro or Universal apps in windows are properly giving all permission to the app or not , you can read more here.
