    Hi, sorry I'm not good with computers and recently I found that my memory is being used up very much and it's making my startup and my laptop very laggish.
    Here are the screenshots for the usage.

    You didn't say how much RAM you have on your system.

    Hi, well windows ten likes to use memory , and with only 4 gb, (64 bit), I do not consider your usage as abnormally high. It is what I would expect. Adding more Ram is your solution.

    You appear to have a HP brand laptop which has an Intel Core i5-4200M processor and 4 GB of RAM and is running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
    What's the exact serial number(S/N) and product number(P/N) on it?

    Bring up the Task Manager window, then select the "Startup" tab.
    Submit an image of that window.
    Make sure the "Name" column is wide enough to see their entire names.

    I agree with jenae.
    Adding another 4 GB and running it with 8 GB of RAM will improve speed and snappiness.
