Windows 10 high memory usage not shown in task manager

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
New Dell Latitude E5450. 4GB of memory.  250 GB Samsung SSD.  Intel I3-5010U.  Here's a screen shot of the task manager.  It says that
77% of the memory is in use but if you add up the different applications and their memory use it comes no where near to 3GB.  What's using all the memory?  Thanks, Altask manager
