    You’ll need to perform a clean install to get to the 64-bit version of Windows 10 from the 32-bit one.

    You didn't describe your laptop nor advise what Windows version(7, 8) and bit number(32, 64) came in it.
    What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of your laptop?

    Just because your laptop can support a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 doesn't mean it'll automatically upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 10.
    It depends on whether your laptop was running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 before you made the upgrade to Windows 10.

    What's the complete model number of that Toshiba Satellite L635 series laptop?
    Note: The complete model number will have a dash and additional characters after L635.
    If that laptop was running Windows 7 32-bit, it would automatically upgrade to Windows 10 32-bit.
    The only way for it to upgrade to Windows 10 64-bit is to have Windows 7 64-bit running in it.
    It cannot upgrade from Windows 7 32-bit to Windows 10 64-bit.
