    Strange thing, since it's geared at schools, is it only comes in OEM and retail versions - no VL licences (in Creator's anyway)

    Does someone that has this version installed have this file? I'd like to check if it's been updated in Cloud..

    C:\Windows\System32\spp\tokens\pkeyconfig\pkeyconfig.xrm-ms

    If it can be upped here, that would be just dandy

    Here's the content of C:\Windows\System32\spp\tokens\pkeyconfig\ folder on a clean installed W10 S which was automatically activated based on underlying PRO digital license: pkeyconfig.zip

    Thanx Kari...

    Another strange naming thing I noticed... EnterpriseS (aka LTSB) = No to little UWP vs Windows 10S = only UWP..


    Edit: Just checked the file and key configurations are unchanged.

    On the plus side, Internet Explorer is there, for those that don't like Edge. And Media Player if your not a fan of Groove. Administrative tools is there too, along with Control panel. I'm thinking trouble shooting issues with this version is going to a PITA. Especially activation issues with no access to command prompt or power shell. Those that want to tweak the UI are in for a disappointment to I think. No regedit either, not via search anyway. I haven't gone looking in any folders yet. Just doing a quick search for the usual stuff.

    Anybody try to install any peripherals like a printer or all in one manually? My wireless HP Laser Jet was auto detected and installed, which is a good sign. Just wondering if it will let you run the printer utilities that come bundled with said items. I don't have a disk handy to try it myself, I never install that stuff and have no idea if I even kept the disks, lol.

    EDIT: Just noticed HP Smart "Trusted Store App" installed in the background. Good, I guess?

    I'm starting to repeat myself. Only tools that come digitally signed from Windows Store can be run. That includes ALL MS provided drivers and applications (mostly UWP). If you try to install or run any app from elsewhere but Windows Store or WU provided binaries it won't run.

    Yah, I agree.. it's gonna take some getting used to, to troubleshoot in UWP... the error codes are different and 'concealed' whereas with Win32 there are components to convert them to a sensible description...

    Having said that, Google's Chromebook works much the same... and seems trouble-free

    Ok, fine, chill out dude. I'm just posting some observations. Is this the way it's going to be for the rest of this thread? Pick everything I say apart?

    Found regedit, as expected double clicking gets a "this mode of Windows only runs verified Apps etc." And a still want to run it, see how' option that takes you to a upgrade to 10 pro screen.

    I'm getting the occasional "script error" message. Just got one when opening services from administrative tools. Object doesn't support this property or method. You can continue though. Not sure what that all means?

    @alphanumeric I am sorry, not trying to pick on anyone.

    Windows 10 S is same binaries as Windows 10 Pro, except for the policy configuration and some re-routing of messages to Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, if you want to run binaries that are not digitally signed by Windows Store.

    If you upgrade to Pro, only thing that change should pretty much be the policy configuration and maybe some other small tweaks. Nothing to Windows internal related binaries should be downloaded during the upgrade process.
