IE 10: 32 or 64 bit?

Running Win 7 64 bit.

How can one tell what version IE 10 is running...32 or 64 bit?

Right click on either the tab row or Title bar of IE 10 and check Menu. Then in the menu bar Help/About, that will say IE 10 64 bit if you are, if it says just IE10 it's the 32 bit.

Which one did you download?

I don't have separate versions anymore (32 or 64 bit) since updating.

Download Internet Explorer 10

You have to choose the right download for your system.

I downloaded for a 64bit and my about looks like this.

Derekimo, that's exactly what I got. I did download the 64 bit one. I just double checked. Thanks for the input.

In a 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8, IE10 has both 32-bit IE10 and 64-bit IE10 all in one now. IE 10 runs 32-bit tabs by default. If the user turns on “Enhanced Protected Mode”, they will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE 10. The tutorial below can give you more details.

Internet Explorer 10 - Enable 32-bit or 64-bit IE10 in Windows 7

None of this applies to 32-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8. IE10 in them is only 32-bit.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I tried installing the 32 bit version on 64 bit and it won't do it. Sorry, I was all wet.

Strange, when i'm in my admin count ie 64bit is ok, but in my normal count i must turn 'enhanced protected mode' if i want ie 64bit, if i don't do that it's only 32bit even if i launch it in C/programmsX64.
(When 'enhanced protected mode' is turn on the addon are off).
Why it's ok in admin count and not in user count.it's a pity.

If you have 64-bit Windows 7, then you should use the 64-bit installer for IE10.

If you have 32-bit Windows 7, then you should use the 32-bit installer for IE10.
