Windows 10S will become 'S Mode' next year

Samsung DeX Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders

The disappointment of Windows RT might explain why Microsoft has been so quick to change its approach with Windows 10 S, which has so far been available on only a handful of Surface tablets and other devices.

The next marquee Windows 10 update won't be just about creators - it will also blow artificial intelligence (AI) wide open on the operating system (OS).

Microsoft is holding Windows Developer Day today, an event that it's been having twice a year as of late, shortly before each feature update for Windows 10.

MICROSOFT HAS confirmed rumours that its stripped-down UI will now be a "mode" rather than a separate operating system. Understandably, it's been a bit hard to determine how to classify what's essentially functioned as a forked version of the company's broader OS.

The confirmation came via the tweet you see above by Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft.


According to the site, 60 percent of buyers stuck with Windows 10 S upon purchase. "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version".

While Microsoft will be abandoning Windows 10 S but, it will not abandon its Windows '10 S users as Microsoft will be giving free Win 10 Home upgrade to Windows 10 S Users.

Microsoft released the second Windows 10 "Redstone 5" test build to those in the Skip Ahead ring on March 7. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox.

The mode will restrict Windows 10 to only run certain apps from the Microsoft store.

Recent rumors had suggested that Microsoft was planning to scrap its paid upgrade scheme for some Windows 10 S device owners who want to upgrade to Windows 10. With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect this May, Microsoft seems to have prepared an overhaul of its privacy settings screen.
