Main difference between 32 bit Windows OS and 64 bit

Hello! I am a very old Windows OS user but one thing that I never really understood about its OS is the main difference between the 32-bit operating system and the 64-bit operating system and the fact that it could make so many differences in the two machines. What is the major difference between the two? People often say that you can get more RAM in 64 bit in comparison with the 32 bit but that is not the difference, I guess its a feature. I am sure it must be a huge difference because we see there are different versions of the same software for these two different versions of the same operating system.

Main difference between 32 bit Windows OS and 64 bit

Hello Jack!

It is simple to explain that processors or systems differs from how they handle and process applications. The difference between 32-Bit will only handle smaller bits of application and process data to information. Unlike in 64-bit it handle larger application and processes. Most of the software designed for 32-Bit will work with 64-Bit Operating system and platforms. Devices for 32-Bit will not work on the other hand with 64-Bit. All software and systems designed for 64-Bit won’t work with 32-Bit platforms. There is a difference between the two on how they process and how they execute system. 64-Bit platforms is much faster than 32-Bit. It seems that if you already used both platforms no difference at all. The data or processes in 64-Bit is far bigger/vast to process that’s why it will consume the same time with 32-Bit.
