    Windows Q&A

    • Why should I buy a Windows device?
    • Windows devices are available in all shapes and sizes to match your lifestyle and they can also be customized with your favorite apps, colors, and backgrounds to match your personality. Multitask with ease on a Windows device. Run Office side-by-side with your web browser, or make a Skype video call while you check email. Windows devices also work with stuff you already have, they include ports for printers and cameras and work with your favorite apps.*

       

      *Windows RT 8.1 devices only runs built-in apps or apps that you download from the Windows Store.

       

    • Does Windows have the apps I want?
    • Right out of the box, Windows 8.1 comes with apps to do all the basics and a lot more. There are apps to stay in touch, save your files to the cloud, and keep track of your photos and videos in new and easy ways.

       

      Plus, you can visit the Windows store to choose from over 100,000 apps for games, music, news, weather, and entertainment, to just name a few. 

    • Did the desktop disappear?
    • No. You’ll also still be able to work with the familiar desktop just as you did in earlier versions of Windows. If you spend most of your time on the desktop, you can even set Windows to go there instead of the Start screen when you first turn on your PC. 

    • I have heard it is for touchscreens. Can I still use a mouse and keyboard?
    • Yes. You can use it the way you want: touchscreen, mouse and keyboard, or both. You’ll also still be able to work with the familiar desktop just as you did in earlier versions of Windows.

      Note: The touchscreen functionality is dependent on the specifications of the device’s screen. Please check the specs of the machine on this page to know what features are included.
    • Can I use my current software and printers?
    • Windows 8.1 is compatible with almost all of the peripherals (printers, cameras, keyboards, mice, etc.) that you’re using today with your Windows PC or tablet. You can also use most of the desktop programs you currently use, including Office programs. 

    • What if I buy a PC running Windows 8? Can I update to Windows 8.1?
    • Yes. If you're running Windows 8 you'll be able to get the free update to Windows 8.1 through the Windows Store.
