Dumb Question - How to Upgrade to WIN 8.1

suziequeJuly 15, 2014

Ok, I know I'm late to the party.

I have Windows 8 and want to upgrade to 8.1 (finally!). I can't seem to find the right place to effect the download. I've been to the Windows store but can't find the free download.

Do you have a link for me?

Many thanks!

Have you checked out all the apps on the desktop? One of mine was/is a link to download 8.1 that I can use if I decide to go there.

Edit: OK, not the desktop, but the start page (what comes up when I hit the MS sign--between ctr & alt.)
