Windows 7 64-bit need to use Internet Exploer 32-bit version

Is there a way to run a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer on a Windows 7 64-bit install?  I don't believe you can with either IE 10 or 11.  If I remember correctly you can with IE 9.  I just didn't want to roll the browser back that far. Please let me know.  Thanks.

Windows 7 64-bit comes with both 32-bit IE and 64-bit IE.  32-bit IE is the default, and you should find 64-bit IE on the Start Menu.

You install IE on Windows 7 64-bit. The install includes both 64-bit and 32-bit. There is just one install.

Then select the shortcut:  Open Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer,  then Copy iexplore.exe, then move to the Desktop and Paste Shortcut (NOT just Paste). Now you have IE 32-bit on your desktop.

Right, I know there is a single install for IE 11.  Can you force it to run in 32 bit mode?

As I noted, make a shortcut of 32-bit iexplore.exe and paste shortcut on the desktop. Then when you launch IE it will be 32-bit. If I now launch IE from a URL (say in an email), it will launch the 32-bit version because that is my default browser.

Thanks.  I was running it but couldn't tell a difference in the versions.  I finally ran process explorer and that one does run as 32 bit.
