    Have you ever found yourself wondering how anyone got anything accomplished before computers? Without the organization, networking, database, management tools and more that our PCs deliver to the workplace, our jobs would be much more difficult. In fact, in today's job culture, multitasking has become a way of life. You answer e-mails while you update a project, do research on the Web while you search for a reference file. During break times, you might even catch up on some news or do some social networking. Big presentation coming up? Get some work done after hours from your PC at home. Our PCs have become integrated into our work lives to a point where inspiration, productivity and networking depend on them. With that in mind Windows 8.1 Pro has been designed to bring you an operating system that can handle all of your professional demands — no matter what may come your way. Whether it's just another day at the office or the biggest pitch of your life, Windows 8.1 Pro is there to back you up.

Just sign in to your Microsoft account and your desktop will appear with all your personal preferences and settings so you can keep working wherever you are. With Windows 8.1 Pro, you receive the comprehensive defense of data encryption for your entire drive with BitLocker Drive Encryption, which helps block hackers from accessing system files. The Remote Desktop feature lets you access your home PC from work, so you can access your apps, files and network resources as if you're sitting right in front of your home computer. Easily join your office's network with domain join, so you can share file and printer settings, access network files more.
