Windows 8.1, now with a new Start screen

With the new Windows, you can watch movies or play games with Xbox, Skype with friends, get work done with Office, access files anywhere with OneDrive, or find your next favorite app in the Windows Store. And you can get to it all from the new Start screen, even your familiar desktop.

Your familiar desktop

From the Start screen, you're just a click away from the familiar Windows desktop you know, so you can do the stuff you’ve always done.

Your own unique start screen

Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromTook a minute to get used to itI'm glad I finally upgraded. 8.1 is actually quite user friendly. Honestly, I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. It happened when my HP laptop from 2007 (that runs in pristine condition) had an old version of Word. I got fed up because I had compatibility issues with work & school projects. I paid for and downloaded the new Office. Then at work they started using Windows 7. I liked it so much, I wanted it at home too. After researching the differences, I decided to get Windows 8.1. Plus, it supports two monitors. Monet well spent. I absolutely love it and prefer it over my wife's iMac.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromOperating System Works WellI am primarily a Mac user and was wary about equipping my Windows computer with the new operating system based on all the negative reviews, but I took the plunge and, so far, it has been fine. My computer starts up a little faster, something I did not expect. The tiles don't work consistently to update things, but I generally don't use them anyway. I don't feel the need to do a lot of tinkering with my operating systems and I have noted that most of the negative reviews center around this aspect of 8.1. For me, it works fine. Interested to see what 10 will be.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromNOT secure, NOT private, NOT fast, NOT reliableExactly as the title says. I spend at least an hour of my day trying to fix this junk so I can get my work done. For example, Windows Update: downloading an average of 15 updates PER DAY is really fun, and then you get to restart your computer, and then 14 of those updates you downloaded "failed" to install, so you get to spend two hours attempting to get all of them installed. Mind you, 99% of the updates are security patches. What exactly does that say about this OS? Also, there are an asinine amount of different troubleshooters. Again, what's it say? Pain in the you-know-what, an endless cycle of joy indeed. It's looking as though I'll be offline, permanently, come Windows 10 in a few weeks. Just thinking about it, I threw up in my mouth a little. BEWARE.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromWorks OK, could improve to keep from reloading driThe Win 8.1 is great but you need to reload some of the driver's to make everything to work again

Rated 4 out of5 by fromNice upgradeI enjoy this much better than Windows 7. Look forward to Windows 10 in July.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWindows 7 was much betterThis is harder to get around. I have a hard time finding my programs and documents without buying an app. I was having some issues with Windows 7 and needed to reinstall it but couldn't find my disc therefore I had to upgrade. So sorry.

Rated 1 out of5 by froml haven't been able to download itVery disgruntled. Haven't been able to download it no matter how many ways or times I try.
