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

    Hi Gary,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    As you have a query on why the programs run in 32 bit when you have a 64 bit of Windows 10 installed. We need to install 64 bit application to run those in 64 bit processing set. If you install 32 bit applications it will run on 32 bit mode even if
    you have a 64 bit Operating system installed.

    Let us know if you have installed any 64 bit program and it doesn't show in c:\Program Files folder.

    Try installing 64 bit applications and let us know if it runs in 32 bit mode.

    Hope I have answered your query, if not please let us know to assist you better.

  3. Windows 10 64 bit to 32 bit

    Hi Ajay,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    I would like to inform that 64 bit Operating system can run 32 bit programs but, 32 bit Operating system cannot run 64 bit programs. So I suggest you to stay on the 64 bit Operating system which can run both 32 bit and 64 bit programs. If you want to install
    a32 bit Operating system, you need to create an ISO media using the Media Creation Tool and install from the installation media.

    Refer the link below for more information:

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to
    write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Install/Run 32-bit program on Windows 10 64-bit

    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.
