Windows 10 S Coming To All Windows 10 Versions Thanks To The S Mode

Belfiore does not explicitly say whether Microsoft and its partners will stop selling machines with the old, separate version of Windows 10 S installed, nor does he offer a specific date for the release of the functionally-equivalent S Mode to Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro users.

This update will be downloaded and installed if you go to the Windows Settings Update & Security Windows Update page, and click Check online for updates from Microsoft Update.

However, PCWorld senior editor Mark Hachman noted in a tweet yesterday that Futuresource's report did not specifically mention Windows 10 S. When it released Windows 10 S past year, Microsoft said it had developed the OS based on feedback from students, teachers, and school administrators around the world. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Vice President responsible for Windows, told about the upcoming changes. "Based on that feedback, we are simplifying the experience for our customers".

Serena all set for tennis return
The 23-time grand slam singles victor gave birth to Alexis Olympia on September 1 and has been working her way back to fitness. The 23-time Grand Slam champion won both of their previous matches, including a 6-2, 6-0 win in Indian Wells in 2015.

We're fairly certain that the majority of Windows 10 users still won't be satisfied with S Mode if it precludes the use of their favorite software.

This is the official confirmation that the official version of Windows 10 S as an isolated OS is being abandoned.

Hundreds of thousands of residents are still thought to live in the Eastern Ghouta, seven years into the civil war. Hassan lives in Douma in the rebel stronghold of eastern Ghouta, now under siege from the Syrian army.

It remains unclear how turning Windows 10 S into a "mode" will alleviate customers' confusion. However, they must be updated to the latest versions of Windows 10 to ensure protection from the latest security threats.

The good news is that S mode won't be forever: Belfiore wrote that "If a customer does want to switch out of S mode, they will be able to do so at no charge, regardless of edition". These rumors turned out to be false as Belfiore confirmed in his blog post.

'Fortnite Battle Royale' for iOS Coming, Invite Event Set for March 12
We know Fortnite for Xbox One can cross-play with other platforms, so there's likely a reason behind its exclusion. That would seem to put the non-mobile players at a huge advantage, given the controls, but at least it's an option.
