    Hello Manjunath,

    No. It will still be Windows 8.1 Preview it refreshes.

    Can you please clarify whether Microsoft Office 2013 will be wiped out and need to be reinstalled is I perform a refresh? Te rest of you information is quite clear, but not sure whether Windows considers Office a store app or not, after all it does perform updates on it like any other store app. Thanks.

    Hello Ellisr, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Office 2013 is considered to be a desktop app, so it will be removed during a refresh, and will need to be reinstalled afterwards.
