im currently running modded minecraft with 7-8 gigs of usage and it says im using 95% of my ram, my other programs i have open are discord with 500mb, overwolf with 400mb, medal with 400mb, steam with 300mb, brave browser with 200mb and antimalware with 200mb. (the other proghrams use about 20-30mb and theres about 10 of em.
add that up thats about 2 gigs, now idk how much windows uses but i dont think it uses the other 6-5 gigs.

Behind the scenes, Windows may be doing a lot of things you don't know about.

Windows will use what it wants to and what is otherwise not being used at this moment.

If something else needs to use more RAM, the OS will give it up.

Are you seeing some real performance issue?
