Windows 8.1

Microsoft Windows 8.1 DVD


The new Windows.  Everything you already love. And a lot more.

Product Description

The familiar made better

The desktop you’re used to—with its familiar folders and icons—is still here. And not just still here, it’s actually better than before, with a new task manager and streamlined file management. And you can always get to your desktop—and back to your Start screen again—with a tap or click.

A program running on a Windows 8.1 desktop


Use them the way you always have. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other programs you count on work the way you’re used to. Use a mouse and keyboard and organize your stuff in folders on the desktop.


Windows Defender and Windows SmartScreen can help guard your PC against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software in real time. Family Safety gives your kids some independence while still keeping tabs on them.

Mouse and keyboard

You can use a mouse and keyboard to work on your Windows desktop the way you always have. And things you do with touch, like using apps from the Windows Store and getting around on your Start screen, can also be done with a mouse and keyboard.

Make it yours


Photos, news from friends, your favorite apps and sites—put what’s most important to you on your Start screen. Choose your colors and move stuff around until it’s just the way you like it.
