How to tell if Internet Explorer, FireFox, or Chrome is 32 Bit or 64 Bit

Well it took me over 15 mins to find out how for a client if his version of Internet Explorer was 32 Bit or 64 Bit, the funny thing is that it took me that amount of time, and the answer was in front of me.

Here are some areas that I check that will not give tell you if your browser is 32 Bit or 64 Bit.

1. System Folders
2. Add Uninstall a Program
3. System Registry (though may be there, but can be hard to located and a complete waste of time)

So your probably saying to yourself, well just tell us you fool! Well it's located in the task manager! Duh! Who would have thought the task manager would give you the BIT of information you needed. wink.gif

How To Access the Task Manager

1. Go to start
2. Type in Search for Programs and Files
3. Task Manager

Browser 64 bit or 32 bit


If you are on Windows XP do this

1. Go to start
2. Run
3. Type in taskmgr.exe

Once this is complete go to the processes tab, and move the separator between processes and services to the left to see if the software is *32 bit or *64 bit. If you see nothing, this is because you are not running the program. Pretty damn simple, but I figured it was worth the post since I have not been on my blog in a long time.
