Windows 8 is better than 8.1

I love my hp laptop. Envy ts 17.  The windows 8 operating system is much nicer than the 8.1 system I have on it.  I would like to uninstall 8.1 And install 8.  I need directions.  also I have ample storage and do not use the cloud or skydrive.  I plan to start online classes soon and need to resolve this issue,

Re: Windows 8 is better than 8.1

Thank you for the help. My system, win 8.1 is an original factory install. I suppose all I can do is to wait for an update that returns the Win 8 features. I am very disappointed with this system. Please keep me posted. Thanks

:smileyvery-happy::smileyvery-happy:

 I have talked with Micrsoft Tech.  She has told me I can install Windows 8 from a disc.  This installation will overwrite the Windows 8.1 os I have on my new Hp Envy 17 Touchsmart Computer.  Of course this program does cost $119.00 and with the cost of the computer being $1200.00 this is a little pricy.  However I am thrilled to have the system.

 

Thank you for your assitance
