  • Microsoft Previews New Privacy Screen For Windows Insiders

Soon, if a school or business wants to lock down its Windows 10 devices, it can simply turn on 10S mode, without Microsoft having to gimp an entire category of devices.

Talk of Windows 10 "S Mode" has been floating about for a few weeks, but this was the first time that it has been acknowledged as a "mode", which will roll out next year.

The messaging on the software was always a bit messy, though, and the company didn't really do itself any favors by launching it on the high-end Surface Laptop.

Microsoft head honcho Joe Belfiore confirmed today that Windows 10 S won't be a separate Windows version anymore and that Microsoft will ship an "S Mode" with Windows 10 starting 2019.




That's not something that Microsoft has confirmed as yet. Understandably, it's been a bit hard to determine how to classify what's essentially functioned as a forked version of the company's broader OS.

If we're to take the Neowin story as 100% accurate, "S Mode" will be available for any owner of Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Enterprise editions. That rumor also stated that PCs with Windows 10 Home and Education in S Mode will be able to upgrade to Home for free, but Pro users will have to pay $49 to upgrade from Pro with S Mode to regular Pro.

Around a year ago, Microsoft released their Windows 10 S operating system - meant to be a direct competitor to the Google Chrome Operating System.

According to the site, 60 percent of buyers stuck with Windows 10 S upon purchase. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic. These new privacy features/changes are already available for the insiders in Fast Ring with the latest Build 17115. Chrome OS and Chromebooks proved popular in the education market, both because of the comparatively low price and ease of use. "Windows can perform AI evaluation tasks using the local processing capabilities of the PC, enabling real-time analysis of large local data such as images and video", the company explained. 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.
