    Win 10 64-bit to 32-bit


    I have Win 10 64-bit but some older programs won't work on it. The maker of the programs have abandoned them so I can't go back for updated versions. I've tried the compatibility mode, etc. I'm thinking I might solve the problem by installing the Win 10 32-bit version. I apparently have to override the 64-bit OS to do it. I assume I can make a disk of what I have now and try it, and if it doesn't work, go back to the 64-bit version. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    :)

    Upgrade Windows 10 32-bit to 64-bit.

    You have to do a "clean install" of Win 10 64 bit. There is no "upgrade" process from 32 to 64 bit.

    Did you have Win 7 Home or Pro. There is no "free upgrade" from Win 7 Home to Win 10 Pro. You have to do that upgrade in at least 2 steps:

    Win 7 Home to Pro to Win 10 Pro

    OR

    Win 7 Home to Win 10 Home to Win 10 Pro

    The 32 bit to 64 bit upgrade is a separate additional step.

    Run the WinVer command. What Version and Build do you have?

    If you have Version 1803, many people have reported "accidental" upgrades from Home to Pro by MS. But that "upgrade" doesn't work!
