    The sceenshot is correct. There is nothing wrong. This comes about as a result of an update first introduced in Windows 8.1.
    This article explains the situation for those who can understand it.

    Note that this is 2 TB of VIRTUAL address space and has no significant cost in system resources. In Windows 8.1 and later each 64 bit process has a 128 TB private virtual address space. This is up from 8 TB in previous 64 bit systems.

    Yes, I understand the concept of virtual space, we work with that a lot in the flight simulation community. I am aware that it has nothing to do with system resources.

    Thank you for the link, now that I'm aware that it's normal, all is fine!
