    i got a stationary computer with windows 7 home premium 64bit and i know there is two program files folder for both 64bit and 32bit but i have not installed any of my games in them only in a ordinary folder when you enter my hard drive
    (Check My Attachments)
    and when i play a game i can see its runs 32bit so my question is how can i make my game folder run my games in 64bit

    Simply, you can't, most games are written for 32bit OS (to keep the Xp luddites happy) and if we are lucky they automatically use any of the features of any 64bit hardware they find. This is nothing to blame on the OS, it's totally down to game developers pushing the formats that most people have to maximise profits... rather than quality. That said, even when developers do add 64bit support you may well still find them located in the programfiles x86 folder.
