Windows 8.1 Upgrade to Surface RT is Out, with Outlook!

Oct 17, 2013

Quick note. I just upgraded my old Surface RT to Windows 8.1, and, as promised, it automatically installed a complete working desktop version of Outlook 2013.

If you earlier installed a beta of 8.1, you got that before, but it’s good to see all came as expected with the final shipping copy of 8.1.

The low-end Surface is now a much more usable PC, that, with Outlook, can be fully configured for MYN!

For instructions on how to upgrade, see this post from Paul Thurrott.

  1. You can even choose your desktop background as your Start screen background, creating a greater sense of unity and familiarity. And the Start screen in Windows 8.1 features a variety of tile sizes including a new large and new small tile, so you can organize your Start screen exactly the way you want it. It’s also even easier to name groups and rearrange tiles. You can now select multiple apps all at once, resize them, uninstall them, or rearrange them. We also found people were accidentally moving tiles on their Start screen so in Windows 8.1, you press and hold (or right click) to move things around.

      Thanks Brady. Hey, do you know if there is a way to clone a tile (make a shortcut) so that it appears in more than one group in the Start screen? Thanks Michael
