    win 10

    Barely any apps running. 87% ram used, 87% committed.


    8gb ram. 6gb pagefile.

    Barely have anything running. Committed and physical ram are at 87% and won't release.

    I close all programs, and memory use is still high.
    And then it gives me low memory warning and asks me to close firefox.

    This never happened in Windows 7 on my old computer.

    This win10 came with the computer.

    What's happening?
    I wouldn't mind high memory usage if it didn't throw low memory warnings. But it does, and I surely don't have anything open that would altogether take up 7GB of ram.

    I am wondering why you have such a large pagefile? Did you set this? It is best to allow Windows to manage the pagefile size. See my settings below:

    because GTA V needs it. otherwise I keep getting low memory warnings from Windows.

    Also I'd rather not have my pagefile fragmented, so I just give it a large chunk of space. I have plenty of hard drive space, so it doesn't really matter.

    I would start to look into a clean boot troubleshooting process to try and find which drivers or processes are causing a memory leak.

    Why have you 6 Chrome 32 running,
    I don't use it but think you only need 1 of them open
    They could be some of your problem

    I think that's common for Chrome, if I am not mistaken.

    With Chrome the general rule is one process for each open tab except that multiple tabs on a single website will share a process. In some cases there will be more processes. 6 Chrome processes is not at all unusual. I have seen many more with no issues.

    Even a huge pagefile, which is not the case here, will have no significant downside except wasting disk space.
