Windows 10: Memory capping problem 16gb capping at 8gb

    Memory capping problem 16gb capping at 8gb

    Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, first time using the site but I need some help.

    I am currently running a 16gb setup on my pc running windows10 and have a big problem. Every time I use applications that are memory heavy I run into an error making me close down the application or memory/file corruption or leakage may occur. However, if I check my task manager I can see that the memory usage is at 80% and only using around 8gb or less(I have actually added up the amount of space every single app have taken up manually and it was under 8gb while over 90%). I constantly have this problem and never browsed through task manager much before so I am not really sure when the problem arose.

    Here are some screenshots showing my comp specs and a task manager screenshot

    Look at Performance tab and Resource monitor > Memory, you'll see more detailed memory map.
