    How to Determine App is 64-bit or 32-bit Using File Explorer



    If you use the 64-bit version of Windows 10, you can run both 64-bit and 32-bit applications, but you probably want to make sure that at least most essential apps are using 64-bit architecture for better performance.


    Although apps are visually identical between architecture, there’s a benefit of performance when it comes to 64-bit. A 64-bit application can access more than 4GB of memory making the app more efficient and faster over the 32-bit version.

    You don’t have to use 64-bit for all apps, but it’s ideal, especially for those that will benefit from accessing more memory, such as Google Chrome, Visual Studio, and many others. If you want to tell if an app is 32-bit or 64-bit, Windows 10 includes a couple of quick ways to find out using Task Manager and File Explorer.

    In this video, you’ll learn the steps to determine the app is 64-bit or 32-bit using File Explorer.

    To tell whether a Windows 10 app is 32-bit or 64-bit, use these steps:


    01. Click on This PC. 

    02. Under the “Devices and drives” section, double-click the C drive where Windows 10 is installed.

    03. Confirm the 64-bit applications opening the Programs Files folder. 

    04. Confirm the 32-bit applications opening the Programs Files (x86) folder.

    After you complete the steps, you’ll know which apps you need to upgrade to 64-bit architecture for better performance.
