Windows 10 S Mode Coming In 2019, Microsoft Confirms

Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders

The new "S Mode" for Windows 10 will allow Microsoft to offer numerous same features as Windows 10 S without having to build and sell a separate line of products.

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.

The executive also said that the Windows 10 S mode would be released in 2019.

Windows 10 S was originally launched as a dedicated operating system for convertibles and laptops targeting students, though starting next year, it will become a special "S Mode" for versions of Windows 10. This will make it simpler to transition to using Windows 10 S or, in the case of consumers, unlock the full Windows environment.

Earlier reports have indicated that Windows 10 Home users will be able to disable S Mode for free, but Windows 10 Pro users with S Mode enabled on their device will have to pay $49 to disable it. This will enable Windows 10 "to deliver more powerful and engaging experiences" through AI, Kam VedBrat, Group Program Manager on the Windows AI Team writes.

It's still unclear as to why this change is happening, though improving the ease of moving between Windows 10 S and regular Windows 10 isn't a bad idea.

Microsoft has already made available the new privacy screen in today's build for Windows Insiders.

Recent estimates have stated that Chrome OS accounts for about 60% of the United States education market in grades K-12. Chrome OS has also been expanded to higher-end devices, giving these same audiences the option to opt for more power with devices such as the Google Pixelbook.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore tweeted the news on Tuesday.

. Vendors can choose to ship with 10S mode enabled by default and save some money on Microsoft license fees.
