Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

Either that or Micrososft has kept 10 S mode out of the many previews ahead of the semi-annual Windows update due in March 2018.

Microsoft confirmed yesterday that it plans to turn Windows 10 S to a special "S Mode" in the regular version of the Windows 10 operating system. The Verge speculates that Microsoft might simply make the unlock process of the new "S Mode" more obvious so that customers will know immediately what version of the operating system they're running.

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.

The update will also introduce a new privacy setup interface and new privacy setting options.

Some Windows 10 users will now see this screen.

If you installed earlier updates, only the new fixes contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.

Microsoft will bring new S Mode to all editions of Windows 10.

In a reply to Hachman, Microsoft's Belfiore wrote on Twitter, "We use Win10 S as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/guaranteed performance version. I think it's totally fine/good that it's not mentioned".
