So I had my new rig repaired after a faulty motherboard. Lost everything and the guy reinstalls windows and my basics back on it. I noticed in program files its x86 which runs all my games on a 32bit and not 64bit limiting my programs to 4gigs, correct? Tried to use the media creation tool to upgrade and check off 64bit but it stays installed with x86. Any ideas?

There should be 2 program files foldersm one with x86 after it, and one without. if you go to control panel and system it'll tell you which version you have, my guess is 64bit, as the 32bit did not bother showing the x86 indicator in the folder name.

Hello,

Check these steps:

Press Window key +I from the keyboard.
Click on a system.
Click on About.
Check the system type, if it says 32 bit OS, x64 based operating system then your system is running a 32-bit version of window 10 on a 64-bit processor. if it says 32 bit OS, x86 based processor then your computer does not support window 10 64bit processor.
