Microsoft teases new Windows 10 S 'mode' in 2019

Samsung DeX

The Windows 10 S version is factually a lightweight version of the conventional desktop operating system that exclusively allows for the app installation from the Microsoft Store.

Last month it was rumored that Windows 10 S was set to be replaced by a mode that can be set in other versions of Windows 10. This change would add "S Mode" as an option on Windows 10 Home, Pro and Enterprise PCs, giving admins another way to stop users from using apps found outside of the Microsoft Store.

MICROSOFT HAS confirmed rumours that its stripped-down UI will now be a "mode" rather than a separate operating system.

In a blog post yesterday Microsoft showed off a new privacy screen settings layout available now to Windows Insiders.

Allison Janney bags an Oscar for 'I, Tonya'
Asked if her day-to-day life might change now that she's an Oscar victor , Janney said she had to go right back to work at 10 a.m. She has won seven Emmys for her roles on the NBC drama " The West Wing " and the CBS comedy " Mom ".

The Windows 10 S was meant to be somewhat of a "lite" version of the full Windows 10 system, with the company claiming that the "S" stood for "Simplicity".

Part of the appeal of Chrome OS and Windows 10 S mode is the ability to perform basic tasks required for work and education on a capable laptop or PC that is much less expensive than a traditional computer. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic.

This was obvious from a year ago because Microsoft non-coincidentally announced Windows 10 S at the MicrosoftEDU Event held in NY last May. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the USA school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices. To make the evaluation process more efficient, Microsoft is using the GPU available on the device. Microsoft's Joe Belfiore confirmed on Twitter that there will be no "distinct version" going forward.
