Yes, the processor has 64-bit support. This processor family is a little old, it would be good you check the compatibility of other devices with the Microsoft tool before install Windows 10. This link has the Get Windows 10 tool and it checks the compatibility.

Officially, Chromium does not have a stable release. The official developers do not release it to end users. So it is continually in development. Google Chrome is the stable release, but is not open-source. Installer (32-bit) from the Google repository  mini_installer.exe - 54.0.2788.0  Released: Monday, July 4, 2016  Developers: The ...

The folder called Program Files (x86) exists only on x64 systems. It is used to install non-x64 programs (which can still run on a x64 system). The actual x64 programs are stored in the Program Files folder, but the name is always translated in your language (if I go to C: I will see it as Programmes because my Windows is in French). If you press the key ...

Best way for checking is Go to drive.../efi/boot/ If bootai32.efi or bootai86.efi or bootx32.efi or bootx32.efi is present, OS is 32 bit. If bootax64.efi or bootai64.efi is present, OS is 64 bit. Hope this helps. Regards, NightLightStriker

As you already realized the addressable memory of your user-process is limited to 2GB on 32-bit windows (half of the 4GB address-space is reserved for the OS). But you must also take into account that heap-memory is not the only kind of memory the Java-VM uses: there's also requirements for native memory-allocations, stack-space, perm-gen, code-cache etc. ...

32 bit operating systems are limited in how much RAM they can utilize. This is a common problem for 32 bit systems, and can lead to a lot of issues with various intensive programs (think: Adobe suites, video editing, etc.) A 64 bit operating system can theoretically use 16.8 Million Terrabytes of RAM, but in actuality your 6GB installed would work. Ergo, ...

How to use all the installed memory ? By installing an OS that can address that memory. E.g. windows 7 64 bit. Might be a short answer, but there is good reason why we have used 64 bit operating systems for quite some time now. 32 bit memory limit were not a problem on 32MB systems, nor a few years after those. But once you get to the XP era 32 bit was ...

I think you might be conflating system bus with the CPU's register size. CPU's have independent buses these days to access the various components of the system, bus size not-withstanding. In other words, a CPU could be '64-bit' and potentially have a 32-bit bus on the PCI channel, etc. The 64 vs. 32-bit issue is in regards to the register size of the CPU; ...
