Useful Tips before you upgrade
Into If you have a software that has a license, such as Microsoft Office or Photopshop, and you have the license key, it is a good idea to uninstall the software, and free up the license for when you install the again after the update. Otherwise, problems will occur because the software will think that you have both installed on multiple computers.
Into The upgrade to Windows 8.1 is free and available at the Microsoft Store. Although it is possible to keep all your files and settings when switching from Windows 8 to 8.1, those who have installed the preview release will still have to reinstall everything to install the final release of Windows 8.1.
