Determine the platform of the browser

To determine the platform of the browser:

Find out whether the browser is 32-bit or 64-bit:
  • If your operating system is 32-bit, then the browser is 32-bit.
  • If your operating system is 64-bit:
  1. Start the Task Manager.
  2. Click the Processes tab.
  3. Check the process for the browser; if it has an asterisk beside it (for example, “chrome.exe *32” in the following diagram), the browser is 32-bit. Otherwise, the browser is 64-bit.
