Looking for Windows 8.1 Update?

Don't worry, when you buy this Windows 8.1 package, you'll get the update for free through Windows Update.

The new update includes:

  • Start up in the familiar desktop to get stuff done or the Start screen to easily access all your favorite apps and sites.
  • Pin favorite apps to the Start screen, the taskbar, or both for quick and easy access to what you use most.
  • New navigation features make it faster and easier to close, minimize and switch between open apps.
  • Instantly access the taskbar using the mouse from any screen so you can quickly open or switch between running apps.



Product Q&A

  • Does Windows have the apps I want?
  • Right out of the box, Windows 8.1 comes with apps to do all the basics and a lot more. There are apps to stay in touch, save your files to the cloud, and keep track of your photos and videos in new and easy ways.

     

    Plus, you can visit the Windows store to choose from over 100,000 apps for games, music, news, weather, and entertainment, to just name a few. 

  • Did the desktop disappear?
  • No. You’ll also still be able to work with the familiar desktop just as you did in earlier versions of Windows. If you spend most of your time on the desktop, you can even set Windows to go there instead of the Start screen when you first turn on your PC. 

  • I have heard it is for touchscreens. Can I still use a mouse and keyboard?
  • Yes. You can use it the way you want: touchscreen, mouse and keyboard, or both. You’ll also still be able to work with the familiar desktop just as you did in earlier versions of Windows.   Note: The touchscreen functionality is dependent on the specifications of the device’s screen. Please check the specs of the machine on this page to know what features are included.
  • Can I use my current software and printers?
  • Windows 8.1 is compatible with almost all of the peripherals (printers, cameras, keyboards, mice, etc.) that you’re using today with your Windows PC or tablet. You can also use most of the desktop programs you currently use, including Office programs.
  • What if I buy a PC running Windows 8? Can I update to Windows 8.1?
  • Yes. If you're running Windows 8 you'll be able to get the free update to Windows 8.1 through the Windows Store.
