    I don't see any 32 bit drivers either. You may be much better off staying with 64 bit.
    Not necessarily, My dell didn't have 32 bit drivers but windows update found them. It took windows update about an hour to install the drivers after windows 10 installation was done. I did have to leave an old hp usb printer plugged in during & after install so windows update could find a driver.



    Here is a screen shot. Showing my Windows 10 32 bit install.

    In my opinion nowadays 32 bit only makes sense if it's installed on dated hardware that is not 64 bit capable. 4 GB of ram is definitely enough for a 64bit os.

    The only reason to run a 32 bit OS these days is if the hardware isn't good enough to use the mainstream and versatile x64 version.

    I am not sure on the forum rules on this. That screenshot is not technically a wallpaper.

    You can actually do this yourself using windows 10 & mspaint. What you do is right click on this pc, choose properties, maximum the screen shown. Open up mspaint. Choose Resize, select 10 & hit ok. Now minimize mspaint. Then hit print screen unminimize mspaint, then select paste. Now use the eraser to erase what you don't want shown on the desktop (Make sure you save frequently in case you goof). When done select make this the desktop background.

    You can experiment with mspaint you can modify size & other things.
