Windows 8.1: How to download


The update for Windows 8 is finally here, as today marks the release of the Windows 8.1 update. Windows 8.1 has taken some ideas from iOS 7 in hopes of creating a more customizatable environment for users, but the infamous START button will also be making a return.

It’s going to be interesting to see how users react to the return of the Start button, but we will have to wait and see until more users download the update.

Here is how to download Windows 8.1:

Windows 8.1 should show up as a pending update after launching the Store app, and you can begin the update in the click of a button.

The cost of the update is $119.99 for the regular version and $199.99 for Windows 8.1 Pro.

You may also be lucky enough to find the DVD version of the update available at your local store.

The Global Search function and SkyDrive are two of the most exciting features, so be sure to check out the update as soon as you are able to download.

If you have downloaded Windows 8.1 and are currently using the new software update, be sure to sound off in our comments section below and be sure to share your thoughts with all of us.
