Microsoft рассказала о секретном режиме Windows 10

In the post, Belfiore says Redmond received customer feedback that the "Windows 10 S" name was confusing to customers and partners.

The main cause is probably the shortage of apps in the Microsoft Store.

The confirmation arrived on Twitter from the Microsoft Vicepresident, Joe Belfiore. Previous reports indicate the fact that S Mode will simply block a copy of Windows 10, such as it will only be capable of installing apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store, which Windows 10 S was announced to do.

Microsoft announced Windows 10 S in 2017 as a lightweight version of its Windows 10 operating system, created to compete with Google's Chrome OS.

We won't rush Zaha back, insists Crystal Palace's Roy Hodgson
The January signing from Everton remains sidelined through injury, having endured a hard start to his Stamford Bridge career. The Blues must make the Champions League next season and to do that, they must get maximum points in the remaining games.

Microsoft introduced Windows 10 S along with the Surface Laptop just over ten months ago, but rumors that the pared-back version of the company's flagship operating system would go the way of Windows RT started swirling as soon as last month. Belfiore declared that Windows 10 S will be a new mode of the pre-existing versions of next year's operating systems and definitely not a "distinct version". That is why the Redmond giant has made a decision to include Windows 10 S in every Windows 10 version through a special S Mode which will arrive with an upcoming update.

This new approach is vastly different from Microsoft's original strategy.

Windows 10 S, in essence, was "Windows 10 Pro in S mode", as veteran Microsoft reporter Mary Jo Foley previously reported. Previously, if users wanted to switch from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro, they would have to pay $49, as pointed out by ZDNet. From the best casual games to a new generation of PC gaming, Windows 10 is built for games you love. Despite introduction on the expensive Surface Laptop shown above, Windows 10 S has primarily been found on low-priced machines for the education sector.
