Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 S Becomes '10S Mode' in 2019

Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 S Becomes '10S Mode' in 2019

Microsoft is trying something new with Windows 10 S next year.

Microsoft announced Windows 10 S previous year, the new version of Windows 10 was meant to compete with Chrome OS. Should a user not jump ship within the first week of ownership, they'll stick with Windows 10 S 83 percent of the time.

Earlier reports have indicated that Windows 10 Home users will be able to disable S Mode for free, but Windows 10 Pro users with S Mode enabled on their device will have to pay $49 to disable it.

Currently, Microsoft sells Windows 10 S and Windows 10 as separate versions.

It is a spiritual successor to Windows RT, which was locked down in a similar way as a UWP (the called Windows Metro) interface for the original Surface devices, which allowed it to run on an ARM chip.

Wall Street drops: Aus market to open lower
Gold dropped $12.70 to $1,305.20 an ounce, silver lost 13 cents to $16.28 per ounce and copper lost 1 cent to $3.12 per pound. Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 2.55-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 2.65-to-1 ratio favored decliners.

It is worth pointing out here that Windows 10 S machines already have the option to switch to a full Windows 10 version.

PC World contacted him to seek clarification on why Microsoft hadn't included any info on the Windows 10 S version in its blog posts.

The operating system was rolled out in May 2017 as a stand-alone version of Microsoft's OS for desktop. WinML APIs will be made available on all editions on Windows 10.

Last September, Microsoft extended the deadline to upgrade from Windows 10 S to regular Windows 10 by three months, with the new deadline being March 31, 2018. To make the evaluation process more efficient, Microsoft is using the GPU available on the device.

We're excited about the new Windows 10 update coming this spring that will deliver these new privacy set up experiences. "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO ..." Tabs in File Explorer has been a much-requested feature in Windows for years, and a lot of users will be pleased to see the addition of tabs in Windows later this year.
