Windows 8.1 available now. Install updates first and boot to desktop

Windows 8.1 is now available.   You can download it here:  Windows 8.1.  I was not able to install 8.1 until I ran any pending updates on my workstation.  I received no error,  the update took me to the store and just sat.    Once I did that and rebooted my PC it installed without issue.

The boot into desktop setting is on the Taskbar and Navigation menu.

1. Right click the task bar

2. Select Properties

3. Go the navigation tab
