    32bit or 64bit compatible

    I currently use an 8.1 operating system which is 32bit, the laptop has a 64bit processor, if I choose just to upgrade to windows 10 from 8.1 can I upgrade to 64bit Win 10 (from the 32bit 8.1) or would it have to be to 32bit win 10. I Assume if I do a
    clean install I can do it to 64 bit windows 10?

    Win 7 32bit oem Home premium to Win 10 64bit Home

    Hi,

    I have win 7 32bit oem Home premium that comes with my PC without the installation disk (only key available).

    I would like to switch to 64bit especially when windows 10 is available since my system is totally compatible with 64 bit. One way I hoping to do this is to upgrade my 32bit win 7 to 32bit win 10 and then doing a clean install to upgrade to 64bit win 10.

    Will I still get to activate the 64bit win 10 for free if I do it this way?

    WIN 10 - 32bit - I NEED to upgrade to 64bit - my processor is compatible.

    32bit or 64bit

    Windows 10 64bit you can load 32bit and 64bit applications

    Windows 10 32bit cannot run 64bit software, therefore you cannot run apps like QuarkXpress that only come in 64bit versions

    64bit Windows can address in theory 16.8 million terabytes

    32bit Windows can only address 4GB of which 3.12GB may only be usable depending on the version of Windows you are running

    In theory 64bit is much faster than 32bit as a 64bit data word (64 1's and 0's) is processed at each cycle of your processor instead of a 32bit data word. I say in theory as there is

    A lot of modern software is now optimised to run on a 64bit processor, therefore will run faster, it took a long time for software manufacturers to re-configure their software to take advantage of 64bit

    Basically, if you have the option of running either 63bit or 32bit, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by choosing the 64bit version . . .
