Hello barbaradougal,

The official word is no. Take a look at this article


Here's a link to help learn Windows 8 through videos

I hope this helps,

well, that would be tough but today the whole thing went pear-shaped when I tried to install updates. even the Microsoft engineer coiuldn't make it work after trying for about 6 hours. So I took the computer back to the shop and used the opportunity to exchange it for a Windows 7 one! Result!
