How to enable memory compression Windows 10

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Recently I’ve been running programs that really like to soak up my system memory. So much that a lot of the time I don’t even have a gigabyte left. This has led my system to hang and eventually crash quite often. I see in task manager there’s a variable that tells me my compressed memory. I don’t have it enabled, but from the sounds of it, it could solve my lack of memory issue until I buy more. How would I go about enabling Windows 10 memory compression?

Note: Yes, I’ve looked else where before posting, surprisingly I didn’t find much, only things I found were to disable it for odd reasons.
