    Dell Inspiron 11 3000 cannot switch out of Windows 10 S Mode

    My wife just purchased a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 that came running Windows 10 home S mode. She needs to use google chrome for her work and because of S mode cannot install. We tried to switch it in the store and when we press the blue get button it changes to gray then back to then back to blue. We never get the install option. Today while I was working she went and upgraded using the upgrade from the store to Windows 10 Pro for $99 only to find that it upgraded to Windows 10 Pro S Mode and she still cannot install google chrome.
    What I have tried:
    1. The get button from the store
    2. WSReset
    3. Have updated the store and all windows updates
    4. Have reset computer back to factory ( Before she updated to Windows 10 Pro S Mode)

    Looking for any suggestion and Thank you in advance

    I got one of those Notebooks with the 32GB SSD, couldn't Upgrade to Version 1903 due to a change in disk space requirements, not enough free space and wouldn't use a USB Thumb drive or SDHC card.
    Maybe some help here:

    You can get out of S mode for free.
    To leave S Mode, open the Store app on your PC and search for “Switch out of S Mode.” The Store will guide you through taking your PC out of S Mode.

    What is Windows 10 in S Mode?

    Thank you both for your responses. Porthos have tried many times what and the way you posted. My issue is when I get there it has a Blue get button and when pressed it goes gray then back to the blue get again. From what I can gather from other post after pressing the Blue get it should give me a blue install and it doesn't.
