Earlier this year, Microsoft announced S Mode for Windows 10 and phased out Windows 10 S. The “S” doesn’t stand for anything in particular, but Microsoft says Windows 10 in S Mode is streamlined for simplicity, security, and speed. Windows 10 in S Mode only allows the installation of apps from Microsoft Store (formerly Windows Store). Windows 10 in S Mode basically restricts the use of Win32 software. It’s designed for low-end devices in the education market, and Microsoft is still committed to the project. Microsoft is readying a feature called Switch to S Mode. The company is still working on Switch to S Mode feature and it will launch with Windows 10 Redstone 5. It would allow you to easily switch to the S Mode from the Settings app. As noted above, it’s a seamless process so you will be able to enable it with a few taps. You can switch to Windows 10 S by following the on-screen instructions in the settings app. The feature is already available in Windows 10 Build 17686, the most recent preview of Windows 10. The S Mode will likely be a feature of the Redstone 5 update due in the fall. Visit OUR FORUM for further details.
