Version of IE 32 bit or 64 bit? - How can I tell which version I am using?

How can I find out what version of IE I am running? I click on "Help" and then "About IE" and it tells me I have IE 8. I want to know if it is 32 or 64 bit? Help.

Hi,

Are you running 64-bit Windows?

If there is no mention of 64-bit in the About IE screen, the 32-bit version is opening.

You can check the shortcuts you use to open IE.
Right-click the shortcut> Properties. The Target for 32-bit IE will be
["C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"] the 64-bit would be
["C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"]

Hope this helps,
Don
