    I noticed in the Task Manager that Office software - like Outlook and Word are listed as 32-bit. Is this true? I thought the Microsoft apps were made with ARM variants... could I possible have the wrong ones installed?

    Microsoft Office 2010 or newer is available in x86 32-Bit and x86 64-Bit versions. There's no ARM64 version. So yes this is correct.

    I have read Office 365 32-Bit has ARM components. This is probably what you're thinking of and why it runs so well.

    Modern builds of Office are part of the UWP Universal Windows Platform but they are still not native ARM64.
