Everyone uses computers in their own way, and while some of us need deep control over our rig, others are happy with less power over the system. To better target the latter group, Microsoft developed Windows 10 S and launched it last year. This version of Windows 10 only uses Microsoft-verified apps through the Microsoft Store, allowing the company to promise better security, but this version also offers more consistent performance, improved battery life, and faster boots. After receiving a lot of feedback on Windows 10 S though, the company has decided to change the approach, rather significantly.

In an upcoming update, all versions of Windows 10 will have S Mode as an option. If you want to use Windows 10 Home or Pro with S Mode you will be able to enable it, but also if you do not like it, you will be able to switch out of it with no charge. This might be interesting to see how it works, especially for those out there who might benefit from the more tightly controlled operating system (or those who have to fix another's computer).
