    Apparent workaround to avoid MS account store login thing: open File Explorer try ms-windows-store:WindowsUpgrade in the address bar.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for that. As I was coming from the Preview (which doesn't display 8.1 on the first page of the store; at least it didn't on Saturday), I had to use that trick to get to the upgrade in the first place.

    The Microsoft Account step came later, after finding the Windows 8.1 Upgrade and selecting I want to download it.

    I suspect it's a difference in the 8.1 Preview Store vs the 8.0 Store; and probably a foretaste of how the next Store upgrade will work for everyone! (If there is one.)
