    never installed windows 8.1, but it says it's installed


    so I was downloading the updates to windows 8.1, but it wasn't going anywhere so I rebooted.

    Then on reboot, I try again and it's not showing up on the store. I hit the back button a few times and saw the link again, but it says it's already installed.


    Now I am pretty sure it didn't get installed, how can I check if it's even installed/reinstall it?

    Every time I click the update it just says "your apps were installed"

    EDIT: nevermind just had to reboot a few times and then it worked
