Microsoft Previews New Privacy Options, Plans To Demote Windows 10 S

Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders MS Executive Confirms 'Mode' Rumor about Windows 10 S
Grady Vargas | 08 March, 2018, 02:03

With the release of Windows 10 Redstone 5 later this year, the company is introducing a new Sets feature that brings tabs to all Windows applications. It means that the operating system will no longer remain a dedicated version starting 2019, and will shift to its Windows 10 S Mode. By switching to the new "S Mode", your Windows 10 system will no longer be able to install apps from any third-party sources and will instead only accept apps from Microsoft Store.

Windows ML will eventually be enabled across all Windows 10 versions, and it will work with Universal Windows Platform and Win32 apps, Microsoft says.

That's not something that Microsoft has confirmed as yet.

Word broke a month ago that Microsoft was planning to bake an "S Mode" into Windows 10.

Citing new data from the United Kingdom -based research consultancy Futuresource, Microsoft yesterday also highlighted the growing use of Windows 10 devices in K-12 education. Companies like Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Samsung, and Toshiba all offered their own version of laptops that would run Windows 10 S mode, with numerous computers starting at just $189. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox.

Microsoft and OEM partners have already started selling low-end notebooks running Windows 10 S for as little as $189 in an attempt to combat low-priced Chromebooks that have become popular across various industry verticals, but especially in the educational and business sectors. The biggest addition is tabs are now available in File Explorer, a highly-requested feature (more than 20,000 votes) and something Microsoft has resisted in Windows previously.

"We use Win10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/ guaranteed performance version", Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore wrote in a post on Twitter.

When Microsoft introduced Windows 10S a year ago, I was deeply concerned.
