I think I deleted my IE 64 and now im trying to get it back

I was annoyed at the fact I pinned the 64 bit IE to my taskbar and every time I clicked it, it opened a new one. So I pinned the new one, and deleted the old one and emptied my reycle bin. Now when I type EXPLORER 64 nothing comes up. Please help thanks

You only deleted the shortcut or Quick Start button. Type in IE64 or Internet Explorer64. Check the Start/All Programs menu as well.

IE 64 should be in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer as iexplore.exe.

Confirm the version of Internet explorer your using/ sounds like either ie10 or 11 ?
Open Internet explorer,
Gear symbol on the top right and About Internet explorer,
Attachment 294813
Activate Enhanced Protection Mode to use all 64 bit Processes,

Verify with Task Manager,

With EPM not activated you'll see only one 64 bit process usually Managing the open *32 bit processes,

With EPM Activated you'll see One still Managing but All open Tabs are now using 64 bit Processes,

iexplore.exe is being used no matter how you open Internet explorer you sort of have to forget what ie9 and 8 did (found an old search results from ie9,

You can use the Start button search and see there is No 64 bit version listed as in prior versions like ie9 and 8..

Which clicking on the (Internet explorer) listing will open a 64 bit process,
But only by activating EPM will all other processes (Other Open Tabs) be using 64 as both my previous screen shots show by using Task Manager to see it.
Hope this is clearer,
Cheers.
Where did ie 64 bit version go,

Does this file exist?

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

If yes then you have 64 bit IE available.

You should also have:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

That's the 32 bit (default) version.
