    Google can help you..

    What is Windows 10 S and how is it different from regular Windows 10? | Windows 10 | The Guardian
    Windows 10 S mode: everything you need to know | TechRadar

    N.B.
    How is it different from Windows 10 Home or Pro?

    The big difference between Windows 10 S and any other version of Windows 10 is that 10 S can only run applications downloaded from the Windows Store. Every other version of Windows 10 has the option to install applications from third-party sites and stores, as has the majority of versions of Windows before it.
    Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.

    It's so hard to tell me in little words what is the s mode?
    If i want to search at google i know how to do it.
    But from the search i make i confused more than it cleared to me what exactly is the s mode.

    So if you know tell me that is the s mode if you don't simply let someone he knows to answer to me.

    Thank you for your reply. If you note I have given you 2 key quotes. Can you manage to read the 3 quoted sections?

    Here's another on Office 365:

    If you have a device running Windows 10 S, you can only install Office 365 from the Windows Store, rather than attempting to use a msi installer.


    • Click the Windows icon (bottom left)
    • Search for then open the Windows Store
    • Find the product called Office 365 Personal
    • From the results click Install (note:do not use the join button)
    • During the installation, authenticate..
    It was said that Office 365 was free for educational organisations. No idea how far that extends.

    ? What is it that you don't understand from this quote?

    IMO -

    Windows "S" mode should be banned.
    Microsoft can keep their Windows Store.

    Just use Home or Pro.

    S mode needn't be banned since a machine that comes from the factory setup as S mode can easily be reverted to full windows mode.
