Ratings and reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromAnnoying out of the box on non-touch screen PC.Out of the box, having used previous versions for years and years, I found it extremely frustrating and annoying. The familiar start button had disappeared, and I found using my touch pad a living nightmare. I would try and simply move the mouse cursor and next second the screen would change from MS Word to something else. The frustration was such that I nearly threw the laptop out the window (and it was a college computer).Despite a lot of intermittent searching, it took me 11 months to find a way to turn the gesture off on this computer (it's easy once you know how). I have also found a way to get the functionality of the start button back again.Now that I have been able to conquer those too demons... my frustration levels have decreased considerably.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWindows 8 and 8.1 - bring back Windows XPSince upgrading from XP because it was no longer being supported and after purchasing a new computer with Windows 8, then upgrading to 8.1, I have had nothing but dissatisfaction with Windows products. They are slow, frustrating to use, and I have wasted money on performance and cleanup programs therefore you could say I am no longer a Windows supporter (I have used Windows since 1986) but Windows 8 and 8.1 have convinced me that I should be using Apple and their Safari and other software even though it may be dearer but they at least work more efficiently and at greater speed. It is obvious that you have abandoned the home user and headed for the commercial world of APP purchasing which also work slower than XP. Being retired and a pensioner you have priced yourself out of this market

Rated 1 out of5 by fromA giant step backwardsI bought this installed on a new HP touch screen desktop . Two weeks later and Im still trying to get it up and running . Lost hours trying to find my way around the system and installing printers etc. It's not as intuitive as Apple .If only we could get the windows 7 screen8.1 a giant step backwards

Rated 4 out of5 by fromfastest Operating System I've usedI like the layout of Windows 7 better but Windows 8.1 is so fast and zippy. I am very impressed. I have personalized Windows 8.1 the way I want it, so I'm happy.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromLoved the speed, but the layout ...NO!Great sped boost on seven, but the layout was more in keeping for tablet users and those pc user who have touch screens, I did love , it was a great boost to my system which was only just coping with seven, but now I'm using 10 the perfect blend of both 8.1 and 7!
