Benefits of Windows 8.1 :: Why you should upgrade :: Business Benefits

Windows 8 Pro is built for business and compatible with life. It delivers all the benefits of Windows 8, plus new levels of productivity, security, and mobility, all without sacrificing performance or choice.

A new start

Important emails, business contacts, and all of the other work related information you care about is in one place with the new Start screen. Personalize and

organize your experience by putting Mail, People, websites, News, Weather, and your favorite apps front and center, so viewing and interacting with work is only a click away.

Solid foundation

Great businesses are built on strong foundations. Which is why we built

Windows 8 Pro on the proven foundation of Windows 7. Everything that was great about Windows 7 is now even better – faster, more reliable, more secure.


A familiar way to work

Windows 8 Pro lets you choose how to work by incorporating the familiar PC desktop that you know today. In this desktop, the familiar settings and features you used in Windows 7 are still there, but improved. Like the new ribbon in File Explorer that makes it a lot easier to copy or cut and paste files, email files, or search files.

Swipe or type

Businesses need flexibility and choice in how they work. Windows 8 Pro is
designed for both touch and mouse and keyboard, so you can type, swipe or click your way through the day with new levels of productivity. And no matter the device, you’ll experience fast and fluid ways to switch between a spreadsheet and a presentation, connect with your customers, organize your account files, and ultimately, get more done.

Apps galore

Find the right tool for any job with a wide selection of built-in and Windows Store apps. Exploring the Windows Store opens a whole new world of apps that you can try and buy. And of course you can always turn to familiar desktop apps to get your work done as well. With Windows 8 Pro, you can go from full-screen video to spreadsheets in one swipe, or snap them side-by-side for easy multitasking. Or zoom through files, do instant searches within any app, and fire up your familiar programs — all running faster than ever.

Personal and portable

Don’t be limited to your office. Windows 8 Pro is cloud-connected, so your PC comes to life with all the things that makes Windows yours. Sign in to any

Windows 8 device with your Microsoft account, and you’re immediately connected to the people, files, and settings you care about most.
