It appears as if the success of Windows 10 S has not been where Microsoft was hoping, as they're now encouraging users to start upgrading to the regular version of Windows and take advantage of a new Windows 10 S Mode.
Microsoft said the new privacy settings will roll out to customers with the next Windows 10 update this spring.

Rumors of Windows 10 S's demise - as a distinct operating system - have been confirmed. That's as official a confirmation as you can get about Windows 10 S being discontinued as a standalone version of Windows. Earlier this year, leaked reports detailed Microsoft's plan to discontinue Windows 10 S and launch Windows 10 "S Mode" in its place. The Redmond giant launched Windows 10 S in May previous year as a lightweight version of Windows 10 - targeting schools and other institutions - to take on Google's Chrome OS. While the stated intentions of the operating system - improved performance, security and reliability - appear to benefit users, the reality of having no desktop apps still isn't suitable for most customers.
According to the site, 60 percent of buyers stuck with Windows 10 S upon purchase. This would break one of the rules of S-mode, which only allows Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, which is supposed to enable the "guaranteed performance" that Belfiore speaks of, including better battery life. S Mode will enable any Windows 10 PC to be toggled into the Windows 10 S sandbox. Although that upgrade was free on the Surface Laptop for a limited time, this wasn't always true for other systems saddled with Windows 10S, which required users to shell out $79 for the luxury of a real OS. The new development, which was initially a part of the rumour mill, has now been confirmed by Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore.
