I have 15 Gbytes memory on my desktop under Widows10. But only about 40% of the memory is used. How can make aplications/programs use more memory ?

If it is 32bit it won't. They will only use as much as they need, you can't change that even with 64 bit OS and programs.

If you want to test the ram just open multiple browsers and multiple tabs. Windows using 40% of 15 gig of ram is a lot anyway. Windows only uses the ram it needs.

well I think I made mistake in upgrading the memory! I thought more memory would improve the pc performance. I think CPU is the problem.

or you can run more apps at once
