How is ODBC managed on Windows 10 computers?

In Windows 10 have access to both x32bit and x64bit versions of ODBC Data Sources Administrators. ODBC stands for Open Data Base Connectivity. You can ODBC Data Source Administrator  from Control Panel | System and Security | Administrative Tools. If you want to use them frequently you can pin them to the Start menu (you may find it not working as of now, but probably will be fixed in the future).

While the x32bit version has more drivers, the x64bit has fewer drivers as seen in the following images.

Access ODBC Data Sources from Administrative Tools as shown here. You can double click these here to open them.

 Here are the x32 bit drivers.

 Here are the x64 bit drivers.

The PDWODBC is for connecting to Parallel Data Warehouse where applicable.
