Less Ram

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 880-125se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I got a pc about 1 year ago. It works fine it has good fps. but I've been noticing in the command center that I'm using 8 GB or 9gb of ram. I still don't know what I'm using but I once also tried closing everything and the lowest it got was 7 GB. can there be any problem? please help in this situation. By the way, I bought a pc with 16 GB of ram.

Windows 10 will AUTOMATICALLY use all the RAM it needs to run all the tasks that are operating at any one time.


As long as you are not getting error messages about Insufficient Memory, you don't need to be overly concerned about this.


One way to Reduce the RAM demand is to Reduce the number of Windows tasks that are running.  Windows automatically starts and runs tasks that you do not need on a regular basis.  This site offers suggestions about what tasks you can disable to reduce the processor demands:


I use these and have reduced my processor load to under 5% on a routine basis.
