I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, the only way is to upgrade to Win8.1.

Sorry, but until I just heard this I couldn't imagine anyone with Win8 that wouldn't want to upgrade to 8.1.

Why not
- Boot straight to desktop  (the biggest reason for me as someone who hates the Metro interface)
- WMF 4.0
- all the other stability updates
- it's free

Windows 8.1 works much better than Windows 8 and Powershell V4 is there. No reason NOT to upgrade that I can see.
"I don't want to upgrade my windows only because I have to use Powershell V4.0" - by the end of 2015, there will be no more security updates for 8. You will need to move to 8.1 soon.

There is a very good reason that 8.1 replaces 8. It is not just an OS upgrade. W8 has many flaws, mainly in the UI and Usability. The only reason not to upgrade is that it needs a lot of time and disk space. And really nothing is getting worse from 8 to 8.1.
