there is Hyper-V manager, which comes as Windows feature (control panel -->  programs and features --> turn windows feature on or off).

Here is useful link:

There is no other application..that is there is MS System Center Virtual Machine Manager, but that is not free.

If you can't add that feature in your Windows 8.x version, then you are only using the "Core" (equivalent to "Home") version of Windows 8.x. You will then have to upgrade to at least the "Pro" version.
