Microsoft has released a tool that allows you to download the Windows 8.1 installer and create the installation media. Windows 8 users who wanted to get the Windows 8.1 installer from official sources have been up to date because they can only upgrade our existing system through the store, Microsoft does not provide a separate installer for Windows 8 users.
So Windows 8 (legitimate) key users must first install Windows 8 on each re-installation and then perform the update procedure from the store. Only one bug from the Windows 8 installation help could be accessed from the official source for the installer. Microsoft has now released a tool to download the Windows 8.1 installer and create the installation media.

In the next step, you can create USB media (you need at least 4GB of media), or you can save the ISO file. When selecting the first option, you need to specify the USB media where you want to create the installer and the destination folder where you want to save the ISO file for the latter.
