Latest Windows Insider Build Shows New Privacy Screen Settings

Elite x3

Microsoft has confirmed today that it's going to discontinue Windows 10 S as a separate iteration of its platform and instead offer it as a new "S Mode" in existing Windows 10 versions starting next year.

Microsoft has just released the Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 17110, which developers can now use in conjunction with the Windows 10 Insider build 17110 or greater.

Belfiore also inadvertently confirmed that Windows 10 S was in fact created to tackle Chrome OS and regain its dominant foothold in the educational sector.

Part of the appeal of Chrome OS and Windows 10 S mode is the ability to perform basic tasks required for work and education on a capable laptop or PC that is much less expensive than a traditional computer. Users will still be able to enjoy the functionalities of the operating system in the same way its dedicated version was built for. The big catch with Windows 10 S? It is possible to unlock a full version of Windows 10 if you are willing to pay for it.

From this one can collect light that Windows 10 S that launched last May would not continue in its now existing form of a discrete version of the operating system.

What do you think of Microsoft's decision to drop Windows 10 S entirely in favor of "S Mode"? They need to clarify every single angle to the customers regarding the move, like specifically which devices will have the default enabling of S Mode, and so on.

Given the prevalence of machine-learning and AI in all of our devices, Microsoft wanted to make sure its new framework would complement the wealth of devices out there.

Belfiore prefaced this reveal by stating "we", speaking for Microsoft, "use [Windows 10 S] as an option for schools or businesses that want the "low-hassle"/ guaranteed performance version". "Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO ..."
