any advice on getting a new computer & switching from 32-bits to 64?
Win 10 Pro on my new Dell Optiplex System 10 desktop, but now 64-bit latest Windows 10. Usually latest or latest-1 Thunderbird on all machines. Would like soon to buy a new laptop if my finances permit.

You'll probably not notice any differences when moving to the new system, other than possible performance improvements in a very few programs if you update the program from a 32bit version to a 64bit version. Any 64bit operating system can run virtually any 32bit program so there is no immediate reason to update Firefox or Thunderbird to 64bit if you have been using the 32bit version. This applies to any browser, email clients, word processors, spreadsheets, etc, etc.

I tried the 64 bit version of Thunderbird for several months and it didn't make a noticeable difference in performance.

32-bit Thunderbird. Appreciate your advice: How do I get rid of the junk emails interspersed with the regular ones with Junquilla (bedore they went automatically to the junk folder) illegal or somehow threw them to another folder. Also the view is bad: I'd like to see the whole month calendar: there's room on the right but the junk marker won't move to the left even if I had a decent calendar moved to the space

In addition, it's printing some undesired: google-smtp source, ARC, received stuff , return-path, DKIM, a bunch of other garbage. ahead of the real message
If this contains several problems * you have them, feel free to make comments for any/all of them

In Thunderbird use menu path View->Headers->Normal.
