Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. After many requests from Windows 8 users, Microsoft finally rolls out the Start button (although its functionality differs from its predecessor) and you will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8 Start Screen. With a redesigned Start screen with tiles that update in real-time, Windows 8.1 Pro also focuses on cloud storage as well as offers various apps through the Windows Store. Data security is also a main focus with Windows 8.1 Pro. BitLocker drive encryption helps protect corporate data. SmartScreen services help protect you from malicious sites and software on the Internet. Windows 8.1 Pro provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
