Microsoft-mas gifts.

Microsoft was so happy about the Windows 8 success that they choose to gift us all with a new, improved Windows (or should I say Tileows?!) 8.1.

1) Download & install http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40098 (Administrator permissions required - follow the prompts & Restart as requested).

 

Windows Store

free shopping...how good is that?!

2) Tap (or Click for us oldies) on the green "Store" tile (please note - Administrator permissions might be required).
