General8GB no longer enough Pin

I've had my i7 laptop with 8GB for at least 4 years now (started out on win 8.1).
It has worked fine. I could run
1. web browser
2. Android Studio
3. Android emulator

All at the same time and I never had a problem. Now, I cannot run those 3 or all my RAM is gone.
I can now only (barely) run the
1. web browser
2. android studio

The only way i can use my computer for Android development now is to use an externally connected android device to run/debug apps on. Very sad. This laptop is not able to upgrade to 16GB. I know. It's crazy and cheapo.

Actually, I can barely run the web browser when Android Studio is running. Not great.
When I open too many tabs the tabs just crash and burn.

Win 10 Ram Eater?
Anyways, I also noticed this in win 10 at work and now at home. Check out how many svchost.exe processes are running:

I can't even fit them all on one screen (in task manager) see the snapshot :

What is going on? Has anyone else noticed this?
EDIT - Android Studio RAM
Android Studio eats > 1.0 GB
And it starts up two Java Processes
java.exe - 823 MB
java.exe - 333 MB

Oy!
Meanwhile, any browser eats up about 1 GB (my FF is at 723 MB).

That's 3 GB and the rest of the 8GB is basically eaten up by random win10 and other background processes. Such is the modern life, I assume.
