Microsoft Reportedly Plans to Rework Windows 10 S into ‘S Mode’


– a press release

“Windows 10 S is being reworked into a mode, as opposed to a standalone version of Windows in the upcoming Microsoft update.”

For Immediate Release – February 06, 2018

Muncie, Ind. –  Windows 10 S is being reworked into a mode, as opposed to a standalone version of Windows in the upcoming Microsoft update. According to an insider review from Neowin, Microsoft is planning a new “S Mode” for Windows 10 Home, Enterprise, and Pro.

Currently, Windows 10 S is a unique edition of Windows OS that offers a more streamlined approach to applications and security. Users are restricted to native Windows applications from the Microsoft Store and have throttled access to built-in Windows features such as scripting via the command line or Powershell. Windows 10 S was originally launched as a contender to Google’s popular Chrome OS, aimed at consumer tablets and education markets.

For those with Windows 10 S devices that are unhappy with the new direction, Microsoft is reportedly planning to allow Windows 10 Home users to disable the S Mode free of charge. Meanwhile, Windows 10 Pro customers with S Mode enabled on their device will be given the option to pay $49 to get access to a full version of Windows 10 Pro.
