    The folder will be there in the drive where you installed your windows. If you have x86 bit windows you won't find this folder. Try going to the properties by right clicking on this PC. There you will find Operating System Architecture. See if it is x32 or x64. If it is x32 or x86, the Folder named Program Files is the same as Program Files (x86) you are trying to find.

    c:\program files (x86)

    (Note: if you are running a 32 bit version of Windows it will be "c:\program files" without the (x86) as there is no need to separate 32 bit and 64 bit programs as there will be no 64 bit programs on a 32 bit unit.)

    On 64-bit versions of Windows, it's normally right in the root of the C: drive. It can be named something different in non-English versions of Windows, such as in French where it's "Programmes (x86)".

    If you're running 32-bit Windows, then there is no "Program Files (x86)" folder, just "Program Files" because there's no need to separate 32-bit and 64-bit installations.

    You can open an Explorer window and type %ProgramFiles(x86)% and it'll take you there regardless of where the folder might be, in case it's been moved or renamed.

    It's normally on the same drive as the Windows directory, but can be relocated during setup.

    It may be "hidden".

    Go to Organise > Folder and search options in Windows Explorer, then the View tab and select the Show hidden folders option.

    That should make all folders visible.

    Switch it back to "Don't show..." when you are done, if you find the normally hidden stuff to be a nuisance.
