  1. Windows 10 RAM usage.


    Hey, the other night I finally upgraded my computer from Windows 7 pro to Windows 10. When the system was running on Windows 7 I was able to run games and Davinci Resolve 16 with no stuttering. On idle the memory usage would sit around 1 GB of my 4 GB of system memory. As soon as I upgraded to Windows 10 I idle around 3 GB of ram and that instantly goes to max as soon as I open just one tab in Google Chrome. It's gotten to the point where the PC struggles to even open task manager. Are there any options for a lighter OS or a fix for this high system memory usage? SPECS: core I5-2400, GT 1030, 4 GB ram 1333hz, 256 GB hard drive and a 256 GB ssd.

    :)

  2. high ram usage windows 10 while gaming

    Hi Abhay,



    Welcome and thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    I would like to inform that usually when you are trying to play games RAM usage will be high.



    To see if any other Third party software are accessing high usage of RAM, I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the Search box from the desktop.

    • Select the Troubleshooting option.

    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance
      .

    • Click on Next to perform the System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.


    Method 2: If the issue still persists then,

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.


    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
    Clean Boot
    state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows



    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Refer to "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.





    Hope it helps. Please perform the above methods and update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 RAM usage.

    Task Manager RAM Usage

    My computer is running 64 bit Windows 10 with 6 GB of RAM.

    I have been monitoring my memory usage via Task Manager and occasionally download tasklist via the cmd line.

    What has been bothering me is that my RAM usage at reboot starts at 34%, and left alone, increases to ~75-80% without running any programs.
    (I do have start up programs including McAfee, Dropbox, Seagate console, gadgets, etc.)

    When I analyze the tasklist download file via Excel, the total RAM memory usage is approximately 3.1 GB at 79%.
    Doing the math, this means there is only 4 GB in use?

    I have 2 questions:

    1. Does Task Manager list all the RAM usage or is there some background usage that is not shown.?

    2. Is there any other way to monitor RAM leakage?
