Download Windows 8.1 Preview Full ISO Image File for Free with Product Key: Microsoft had officially released the preview version of Windows 8.1 at the Build 203 conference held in San Francisco. It’s an important update to the Windows 8 operating system and users of Windows 8 will now be able to upgrade their systems to this latest update known as Windows 8.1 and it’s in its preview stage. Remember that it’s not a Service Pack update, it’s even much more, which will add tons of new features and functionality to your operating system i.e. if upgraded from Windows 8. It’s available as a free upgrade for all existing Windows 8 users, so if you already using Windows 8 on your computer, then you can taste out the Windows 8.1 by download & installing the available update package.
There are many new features & improvements included in the Windows 8.1 Preview, which makes a little more advanced and enriched as compared to Windows 8. It includes various enhancements or advancements in personalization, search, apps, the Windows Store, and cloud connectivity from your machine. Apart from that, it’s also much more reliable and secure as compared to its predecessor. However, it’s still in its beta or preview stage, so it may include bugs & loopholes as of now, but the RTM build should arrive soon.
Some of the major new features of Windows 8.1 are – the coming back of the start button & the start menu, Internet Explorer 11 pre-installed, more display options for the metro tiles, new addition of different options & settings, lock screen slideshow, alarm & calculator apps, Outlook 2013 pre-installed, slide to shut down functionality etc. These are all significant features & improvements, but what I liked the most is the return of the Start Button and the Start Menu in Windows 8.1, which was pretty much expected by most of the Windows 8 users. Now coming to the main point – if you are interested to try out the Windows 8.1 Preview, then there are two possible ways to get yourself on this new operating system from Microsoft. The first way is to download the upgrade package from the official website of Microsoft and install it on your existing Windows 8 PC or laptop (you can follow this method only if you are a Windows 8 user, don’t try to upgrade if you are on Windows 7 or any previous edition of Windows operating system).
The second way of upgrading your computer to Windows 8.1 OS is to download the ISO image file for free from the official website of Microsoft via the link given at the end of this post and installing it on your computer from a DVD, USB or Pen Drive, or even install it on a virtual machine using VirtualBox, VMWare or any other similar virtualization client. You can also dual boot Windows 8.1 with Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP etc. with the help of this ISO image file. If you are on Windows 8, then we will recommend you to install it by downloading & installing the upgrade package, as it will keep your apps, settings and other personalizations of Windows 8 as it was before when you were on Windows 8. But installing it from the ISO file will erase all your previous things unless and until you are dual booting the operating system with your previous one or if you are installing it virtually using any virtualization software.
