    Cannot find 8.1 Update in Windows Store


    Hi

    When i goto the Windows 8 Store to update to 8.1
    I cannot find the Update at all

    I am not the only one who cannot
    and would like to update.

    Has the update been removed or simply
    no longer there?

    Or am i doing something wrong?
    I have Windows 8 Pro 32bit

    Thank You for your help

    I would suggest updating your PC and using the MS account to access the store.

    Hello Andrew,

    You would want to install all Windows Updates first.
    Afterwards, see if you are able to update to Windows 8.1.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
