Microsoft is rolling out Windows 8.1 as a free upgrade for all Windows 8 users. But installing the new OS may not be as simple as it sounds, particularly for those with multiple computers to manage or those who installed the earlier Windows 8.1 Preview.
If you are already running Windows 8.1 you can select the Start – Store -there you will most likely see several updates including Windows 8.1. Be sure to do all updates before starting the 8.1. update, maybe also remove any possible conflicting add ons as well.
