Windows 7 Memory Use RRS feed

  • Question

  • I gather from past questions that there is an issue with Windows 7 memory use, which relates to typically around 100 processes running.  To try to overcome problems with an image processing application (Serif PhotoPlus X7) randomly quitting, which Serif Tech Support claimed was due to my 4gb RAM laptop (Lenovo G780) not having enough available memory, I upped the physical memory to 8gb, but the processes seemed to have upped their use.   I'm looking at Task Manager Performance tab. The figure on the bottom right is 24% - is that figure the amount of physical memory available? Or the amount being used?  If it's use, and I have 76% available then I'm in good shape.  But if it's memory available, then I am only about 0.5gb better off after adding 4gb, and if so what can I do about that?
