For the past couple of months my computer has been acting very slow. This happens most when opening applications or booting up my pc. The disk space would skyrocket to 97-100% with 3mb of use. Then somtimes it would go back down to normal and go under 10% use. My ram also seems to be overused even though there is no application that seems to be using more then 4gb of ram. If anyone wants to take this to discord you can add me 1047#1047. Not sure is private messages are allowed but it would be easier. Thank you

Click on the column header of Disk and it will sort up or down. You will then see which application is using the most Disk. Same for Memory.

You have an Acer Nitro N50-600 Desktop PC which came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit and these specs:
Intel Core i5-8400 2.80 GHz 6-core processor
8 GB of DDR4 RAM
1 TB SATA3 hard disk drive(HDD)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 2 GB graphics card
500W power supply

You should add at least another 8 GB and run your Acer with at least 16 GB of RAM.
You should also consider switching from a hard disk drive(HDD) to a solid state drive(SSD).
Doing both will make a big improvement in speed and snappiness.

Your images and the amount of used space in the HDD indicates your Acer is loaded with third-party apps.
That equates to numerous running processes and making it work harder.
