Wont use my physical memory but instead uses the virtual memory. Despite having 16gb of ram my commited ram will hit 21gb but i still have 6gb of phsyical ram left that it wont use. If i lower the virtual memory programs will close when having a game open.

Stop assuming you know better than Windows about how to micro manage your computer. Set virtual memory to system managed and leave it alone, Windows will handle it itself.

Background/inactive tasks frequently get moved to the page file. You want them to remain in RAM? But why?

"If the genius of invention were to reveal tomorrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought."

The memory is fragmented... For example those 6 GB are not one whole continuous empty space... could be 6 GB of empty spaces in a whole 10 GB area, with small fragments of data spread around the whole 10 GB area.  There may be only 200-500 MB of continuous free space. 

 

So if a game or application tells the operating system "I want 1 GB of empty ram, give it to me"... the operating system would have to move some data to page file to make a continuous 1 GB of ram and give that game/application that 1 GB of memory.  As you disabled that page file, the operating system may have to close applications to make room.

I would keep it in auto as some programs throw errors or crash altogether. I once manually set my virtual memory for a specific task and I forgot to turn it back to auto. When I tried to play Sekiro several months later the game would freeze and crash during loading screens. It took me couple of days to figure out it was the manually set virtual memory that was causing it.
