Enhance your Windows 8.1 PC with Pro Pack
With Windows 8.1 Pro Pack you can upgrade your PC to Windows 8.1 Pro and connect to company networks, access files on the go and encrypt your data. Plus, watch and record live TV with Windows Media Center.
Watch and record TV with Windows Media Center
Watch, pause and record HDTV, watch DVDs, listen to your tunes, show off your photos and enjoy online shows, all in one place with Windows Media Center. It's a whole PC entertainment system.
Help protect your data
Use BitLocker Drive Encryption to help protect your files on an entire drive. BitLocker can help block hackers from accessing the system files they rely on to discover your password, or from accessing your drive by physically removing it from your PC and installing it in a different one
Access one PC from another
With Remote Desktop you can connect your PC to another PC in a different location, such as your work machine to your home one, and use all your apps, files and network resources as if you were sitting at your work PC. You can leave apps open at work and then see those same apps at home.
Join or create a workgroup
Easily join an existing workgroup on a network or create a new one with domain join. Workgroups allow you to share file and printer settings, so that you can stay connected to your company’s network.
To install Windows 8.1 Pro Pack, you must be running Windows 8.1.
Some features such as touch may require a new PC. To check compatibility, visit the system requirements page at Windows.com. A TV tuner is required to play and record live TV in Windows Media Center. Free Internet TV content varies by geography; some content may require additional fees.
If you purchase a new PC with Windows 8.1 pre-installed and you later upgrade that PC with Windows 8.1 Pro Pack, you will no longer be able to install apps that are provided exclusively from your PC manufacturer through the Windows Store.
