Most PC's sold today come with a 64-bit processor - this means that it can handle more memory and run tasks faster.  Normally your PC will also come with a 64-bit version of Windows

 

When downloading software/drivers etc off the internet you need to know what version of windows your computer is running, i.e. 32 bit or 64 bit, as most downloads have separate versions and installing the wrong one can cause major problems with your installation of windows

 

To find out what version you have - Choose System > About from Settings, or System and Security > System from the Control Panel - and the dialog box that is displayed will show you what version your computer is running

 

32_or_64bit_1_win10

 

32_or_64bit_2_win10

 

So if it says 32-bit operating system then look for downloads that state 32-bit or x86, for 64-bit operating system look for downloads that state 64-bit or x64
