    64 bit to 32 bit


    Have a Asus laptop with 64 bit system loaded win10 64 bit used 89% of ram contacted Asus unit not suitable for win 10 is there a way to run win10 32 bit on a 64 bit system as this should use less ram.

    Windows 10 64-bit but almost every program is running 32-bit

    32-bit programs will run in 32-bit mode whether or not the OS is 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Very few programs are 64-bit. And, 64-bit programs will run in 64-bit mode on a 64-bit OS.

    Why do all my programs display as 32bit in task manager when my computer is meant for 64bit?

    They display as 32-bit because they are 32-bit programs. Unlike 32-bit Windows which can only run 32-bit programs, 64-bit Windows can run both 64-bit and 32-bit programs.

    There's nothing strange or wrong about this. Some programs have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, but most are only 32-bit.

    64 bit to 32 bit

    Yes, it can be done but you'd have to do a fully-clean install of the 32-bit version. Same would apply if going from 32-bit to 64-bit. Be sure to do a backup copying of any data you don't want to lose to another drive, anything that exists nowhere else. Programs will have to be reinstalled from disc or download.

    The 64-bit version of Windows only requires 2GB RAM but works much better with 4GB while the 32-bit version only requires 1GB but works much better with more but may show only about 3.5GB out of 4GB, not a performance problem as I've successfully done so. I don't worry too much about how much RAM Windows uses as long as it works, it's when programs start crashing that one should investigate why.
