    System and compressed memory

    System and compressed memory is not showing in task manager, is it because I have enough RAM? Thanks.

    "In Windows 10, we have added a new concept in the Memory Manager called a compression store, which is an in-memory collection of compressed pages. This means that when Memory Manager feels memory pressure, it will compress unused pages instead of writing them to disk. This reduces the amount of memory used per process, allowing Windows 10 to maintain more applications in physical memory at a time. This also helps provide better responsiveness across Windows 10. The compression store lives in the System process’s working set. Since the system process holds the store in memory, its working set grows larger exactly when memory is being made available for other processes. This is visible in Task Manager and the reason the System process appears to be consuming more memory than previous releases.

    Before the update, mine indicated it wasn't compressed but now it is thanks to this new feature. I assume you're on the latest version of 10.

    It is shown as System (ntoskrnl.exe). You can check Memory Tab to see, if you have anything compressed.
