You have a good 64 bits laptop but the version of Google Chrome that you see working on your machine is always 32 bits. Why? But first, why to get 64 bit version: 1. Security 2. Compatibility 3. Better performance Just make sure you are downloading the 64-bit version and not the default version from the Chrome website. And double check by opening the task manager again - it should not show 32-bit after the Google Chrome application (like it was showing earlier). Finally, go to Chrome Settings --> About to confirm the version. Good to go!!
