You’ll be pleased to hear that the Windows 8.1 update process is fairly simple and won’t give you a headache in which perhaps previous Windows updates did.

Still though, we’ve seen that consumers are having some problems getting their update to install, where some had expected automatic notifications to happen.

Most likely though, you’ll have to start the update manually, which is what the Windows 8.1 tutorial video shows you below. It’s easy to follow and you’ll have Windows 8.1 running in no time if you follow the steps accordingly.


This video specifically looks at installing Windows 8.1 on the Surface 2, as well as the Surface Pro 2 as well.
