    If your going from windows 7 to windows 8.1, only your files and settings will be saved. All of your applications and games have to be reïnstalled.

    What you can do is buy windows 8 and install it. By installing Windows 8 instead of windows 8.1 directly you can just upgrade your OS. No files, applications or games will have to be reinstalled. Afterwards you can upgrade from windows 8 to windows 8.1 for free in the Microsoft store.
