Solution: Windows 10 Won’t Use Full RAM

RAM is a non-volatile storage device that is typically used to store working data and machine code. When you shut down your computer, all data on it is lost because it is a temporary storage device. The more RAM your computer has, the more smoothly it can multitask.

However, when using Windows 10, you may run into a problem. In the “System Properties” or “Task Manager” interface, you may notice that Windows is only using a fraction of the total RAM.

What is the reason why Windows 10 doesn’t use all of the RAM?

In some cases, some of the RAM is reserved for the system, sometimes some of the memory is also reserved by the video card if you have an integrated video card. But if you have a dedicated video card, this shouldn’t be a problem. Of course, 2% of the RAM is always free. read more
