I would like my laptop to display usable ram instead of only actual ram installed in system properties.

for example it says
installed memory (Ram) : 8.00 GB 

but i would like it to show something like
installed memory (Ram) : 8.00 GB (7.85 GB usable) 

I have a dell insprion 7347 laptop, intel core i5-4210U, 8GB RAM, 500 GB SSD
with windows 10 home 64bit (legacy not UEFI). I reinstalled windows 10 on it. 
I'm not sure if its the Legacy mode is the cause. Any suggestions?

I would like my laptop to display something like the image below

Thanks for the reply but that's not what I'm look for. I know about that, but i want to get something like " installed memory (Ram) : 8.00 GB (7.85 GB usable) " instead of " installed memory (Ram) : 8.00 GB " in system properties.

The usable amount is only displayed if it's significantly different to the total fitted. If the hardware reserved RAM is only a small proportion of total RAM, it seems Microsoft has decided there's no point displaying such a small difference. This behavior is no doubt hard coded into the System Properties display routine, so it's very unlikely that it could be changed.

 

The poster below empirically demonstrated this on a system that did not display "usable", by reducing total RAM available until reserved RAM became a sufficient proportion of total, and then usable was shown:
