Microsoft is starting to phase out 32-bit support for Windows 10

New Windows 10 PCs will only be able to run the 64-bit version of the operating system from the upcoming May update (version 2004). Existing 32-bit systems will still be supported for the time being.

As of Windows 10 2004, the update that will be available in principle later this month, Microsoft will adjust the minimum system requirements for PCs. All new Windows 10 systems released by OEMs will now be 64-bit. Microsoft no longer releases 32-bit versions for manufacturers.

“This does not affect 32-bit customer systems manufactured with earlier versions of Windows 10,” Microsoft emphasizes in its documentation. “Microsoft remains committed to providing feature and security updates to these devices.”

That means that for the time being, 32-bit installation files will still be offered through non-OEM channels, to support users in various upgrade and installation scenarios.

The first step in what may be a long stretched process to make Windows 10 64-bit-only has now been taken. The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is scheduled to be released on May 28, according to the latest unofficial reports.
