I have a new laptop running Windows 10 Pro x64. Google is installed as my default browser. I was checking the version of the Google browser installed and it shows 32 bit. The browser seems to run ok but I want to know if I should be using a 64 bit version if in fact one is available? Same thing with I.E.

Does the 64 bit version have any problems in using it. I am wondering if I made a mistake in setting up my home computer system as 64 bit ??

No it wont make a difference, in fact Google are ending support for the 32bit operating system soon... And no you certainly made no mistake by going 64bit - means support for more than 3.5Gbs of RAM, support for large hard drives, and support for large files (greater than 4Gb in size)... Internet Explorer is dead according to M$, they will end support for it soon, the interim browser is Edge unntil the next one... Check out other browsers too, FireFox ix ok, but if you want something light (like Chrome) try Opera, seamonkey, Midori and the like...

I do not see a 64 bit version of Google for Windows 10 on Google'a website, just a beta version

The Beta version is still undergoing 'tweaks' to be 100% compatible with the Windows 10 platform.
Alas, the latest Windows version for consumers is more aligned with 'tablet' or 'device' use.. not a home PC.

OK thanks. I installed the beta version on this laptop and will try it. If I run into issues I will uninstall it and put the 32 bit version back in.
