Hey Guys,


I have a Dell Inspiron N5050 laptop sitting around with following specs:


Intel Core i3 Processor 2.30ghz
15" Screen
HDMI, USB, Ethernet ports, and SD card reader

Windows 7 Home Edition

Microsoft office 2010 (Genuine Activated Version)


How do I upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7? What are my options?


I don't want to uninstall or loose Microsoft office 2010!!!


Thanks in advance!! :clapping:

All of your questions can be answered at the Windows 8.1 FAQ for updating.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
