    I’m trying to upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1 on a just-bought Dell Inspiron laptop. I’ve downloaded all the Win updates and can now see Win 8.1 in the app store. If I click Download I’m told I need to use an account with Administrator privileges. I’ve tried setting up an Admin account but then I can’t open the app store!!!
    If I’m in the admin account and want to change my user account type to Administror, the ‘Change account type’ box is greyed out.
    Don’t Microsoft realise how frustrating it is when you can’t do the simplest things? Please help
