Question Half of my 16 Gigs of RAM is cached

Oct 29, 2020

There's a link of to some images of my task manager. My computer has been running slow lately. Ive been looking at my task manager and how much ram my computer is using when running programs. In these screen shots I had hardly and heavy applications running, and only one or two chrome tabs. The amount of RAM my computer is using dosent seems right. I noticed that ive cached like almost 7gigs, that seems a bit high. Is there anything I can do to bring that down?.
Try Process Explorer utility, you can find out which process, string is associated with the consumption. Also, disable all programs except for the Windows Defender from your startup list, reboot and see if this issue resolves.
