Windows 10 S Mode can be switched off for free, Microsoft confirms

Windows 10 S Mode can be switched off for free, Microsoft confirms

"Last year we introduced Windows 10 S - an effort to provide a Windows experience that delivers predictable performance and quality through Microsoft-verified apps via the Microsoft Store", Belfiore wrote.

"We expect the majority of customers to enjoy the benefits of Windows 10 in "S Mode". Windows 10 S was a failure but instead of admitting in a straightforward way, Microsoft made it optional on other editions of Windows, as if anyone in their right mind will choose to cripple their computer.

MICROSOFT HAS confirmed that the fledgeling Windows 10 S will be ditched in favour of an "S Mode" for all editions of Windows. Microsoft has already been using AI throughout Office 365, inside the Windows 10 Photos app, and even with its Windows Hello facial recognition to allow Windows 10 users to sign into PCs and laptops with their faces.

It chose to simplify the experience based on that feedback. Unlike Windows 10 S, consumers will be free to leave the sandbox if they desire.

The flatbed was once again dispatched to retrieve the car, forcing another clean-up for the marshals and a short track delay. We'll have a better idea in a couple of weeks in Melbourne and then, in general, after the first few races of the season.

It was reported that Microsoft would enable Windows 10 Home users to disable the S Mode for free but would charge $49 to Windows 10 Pro users with S Mode enabled on their devices to get access to the full version of Windows 10 Pro. Switching from Windows 10 S to Pro now costs $49, so consumers who purchase new hardware and find it unexpectedly limiting have to pay extra to unlock its full capabilities. Vole's new AI platform is called Windows ML and developers should be able to play with it from today, and it will be part of the next major Windows 10 update available in Spring. Previously it was rumored that there would be a $50 fee to switch out of S Mode on Windows 10 Pro, but that will not be the case.

S Mode (formerly Windows 10 S) is primarily designed for teachers and students. Although Microsoft is remaining bullish around the Windows 10 S concept, the decision to drop the standalone operating system is another reminder of the value of the Windows desktop.

Windows ML will let developers create more powerful apps for consumers running Windows 10.
