my surface is set for automatic updates - do these automatic updates include the desktop update or does this have to be done separately? any help and thanks in advance

The automatic updates update windows firmware, Word Preveiw to to full version and other window updates. If there set to update automatically they will update themselves and may occasionally need a system restart for some updates. These settings can be changed in control panel > system and security > windows updates. The Store updates can be accessed for within the store itself.

There are two ways to get to Windows Update:
1) RT version - Charms Bar > Settings > Change PC settings > Windows Update
2) Desktop version - Charms Bar > Search > Control Panel > Windows Update
(It's not a bad idea to pin Control Panel to your Start screen)

I don't think Office 2013 preview will update to the full version unless you do it manually. Not certain on that though.
