Product information

Featuring familiar additions and a wealth of functional improvements, Windows 8.1 makes everyday computing fast, easy and fun.

New additions


Windows 8.1
re-introduces the Start button to the lower left of the screen, making for a more recognisable computing experience. You can also choose to boot directly to the Classic Desktop, just like Windows 7 and its predecessors. 

The Start screen features further customisation options with four Live Tile sizes along with the ability to choose your own picture for the background image.

Multitasking has been revamped to feature completely adjustable windows that let you work on up to three individual apps simultaneously - perfect for chatting while surfing or increasing workflow across email, Office and the web.

Work the way you want

Windows 8
gives you complete control over your digital world, however you want it. From intuitive touch gestures to precise mouse and keyboard hotkeys, Windows 8 is optimised for ease of use, letting you can navigate your files and software with complete ease.

Program icons and folders are based around Live Tiles. These colourful icons provide instant updates and push notifications for compatible software and apps, such as social media and news, giving you current information on the things that matter to you the most.

Searching your computer and the web has been revolutionised in the 8.1 update. Simply start typing a file name, program title or question and Windows searches your computer and if relevant, the web, to provide you with the information you need. Accessing files and filtering the vast amount of the information online has never been easier.

Cloud connected

Cloud integration lets you save and share files and desktops between your Windows computer, tablet and phone. So whether you're editing spreadsheets on your tablet or downloading music from your phone, files, changes and media are automatically updated between your devices when you log in, eliminating the need for flash drives and additional backing up.

Make the most of modern computing with Microsoft Windows 8.1.

­­­­­­­­­­_____________________________________________________________ If you already own Windows 8, there's no need to purchase this upgrade as the 8.1 update can be downloaded free. Visit ‘windows.microsoft.com' for more information.

It runs easy even with a virtual machine (parallels desktop 10) on a Mac.
I am a Mac user and had to buy it as some of my software only runs on Windows. I am not a big fan of the new layout/design of Windows so I use the "old" layout/design of Windows 7 with the famous start button. I never knew why the got rid of it in the first place and the windows desktop - although of course custom able - makes me nervous.
