What is it?
Windows 10 S is a full blown version of Windows 10 for entry level computers as well as education PCs and the new Microsoft Surface Laptop.

How Is Windows 10 S Different?

The biggest difference is that 10 S can only run apps from the Windows Store so can be extremely restrictive. Apps on the Microsoft Store are security checked and this ensures they cant do damage to your computer or leave files on the machine.

Windows 10 S will also come with BitLocker for securing your files in case of theft, which some versions of Windows 10 Home do not have. It also receives the same updates as other versions of Windows 10.

Who Is Windows 10 S For?

Microsoft is aiming 10 S at the education sector, its aim is to have a range of low cost computers that run Windows 10 S. All machines will ship with a free subscription to Minecraft: Education and  10 S will also be free for all schools that are currently running Windows 10 Pro PCs, and include free Office 365 education.
