    On 64-bit Windows 8, the browser frame process (both “modern UI” and Desktop) runs 64-bit.
    However, for compatibility with plug-ins, IE 10 on the desktop runs 32-bit tabs by default.
    If the user turns on “Enhanced Protected Mode” in Internet Options, Advanced,
    he will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE 10 on the Desktop.

    <Restart of whole computer is needed for the change to take an effect.>

    Here is the latest discovery:

    You can only have x64 IE, when the registry setting EnableLUA is set to 1. :))

    What a nice joke from MS, user has two options:

    1. user can be constantly annoyed with UAC confirmations (because MS made its systems for idiots mainly, who doesn't know, what they are doing), but then he can have IE10 x64.
    or
    2. user can shutdown UAC rubbish (like all pro usually do), but then he can only reach IE10 x32.

    :D

    3. User doesn't care if their processes are x64, x86 (please stop calling it "x32") or ARM.

    Hey, all normal persons call it x32, I don't care about your legacy 486 SX 25MHx you are running :)) (or do you have 86 Bits? :D )
    BTW: If you insist on x86, then call it right way Intel 80x86 :D to distinguish from RISC Motorola 68000 (what is same actual as your point). :D
    Also you should write the right label "x86-64" for 64 bits then to distinguish it from IA64. :p

    Such users (who doesn't care about it) will not open this thread... :D

    Hmmm, you probably consider the situation, when the screen goes all gray, you can't click on nothing else and window asks for confirmation for such important action as renaming LNK shortcut :D on desktop very amusing.
    Well, I do not. :D

    BTW: ARM is a joke suitable only for Apple sheeps and their funny devices... :))
    (and MS is cheating the customers greatly with their Windows RT, where no 3rd party vendor has an access to Win32 API)...

    After installing x64 add-in to IE and automated page reload, IE should prompt at the screen bottom, that add-in doesn't support EPM and offer dialog to disable EPM...

    You dear poor fella. There is no need to use x64 internet apps atm. That's why it's so hard to get a straight x64 version going. When's the last time you've used more than 2gigs of ram in an internet explorer session?
    I would kind-of like them to make x64 operating systems use more x64 stuff as well, but it's totally not necessary. My internet app is only using 132megs right now.

    I guess I don't get the desire. Even if x64 were 100% as efficient as 2 x86 threads, which it isn't, the apps don't even remotely use that much ram to bother.
    I'd be more interested in a multi-threaded flash player, that might make a lil bit of difference in my browsing...

    IE10 will give you notice in the bottom of the screen, you don't need to look for any files by yourself...

    It is common condition to have 3-8GB of RAM allocated under the default browser, there is nothing to wonder about it:

    And it isn't "why it's so hard to get a straight x64 version going"... In IE9 it is very easy run x64 version. In IE10 it is more MS stupidity, where x64 mode is combined with another security features and then even conditioned by UAC enabled...
    ...and it is not about RAM, but more about (developing) pure x64 addins for IE in my case.
    BTW: Flash is rubbish (same as Java), I never had it installed, until MS integrated it in IE.
