Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

Microsoft рассказала о секретном режиме Windows 10

Windows 10 in "S mode" soon will be available in all Windows 10 editions, and Microsoft plans to drop a proposed charge for users wanting to switch from S mode.

We hope this new approach will simplify and make it possible for more customers to start using Windows in S mode: a familiar, productive Windows experience that is streamlined for security and performance across all our editions.

Microsoft had announced Windows 10 S a year ago, the new version of Windows 10 which was meant to compete with Google's own operating system, Chrome OS. If you installed earlier updates, only the new fixes contained in this update package will be downloaded and installed on your Windows 10 computer.

Authorities in France, for example, took formal action against Microsoft in 2016 for "excessive collection of personal data", although they closed that case in June after the company introduced a new privacy dashboard and other changes. Microsoft seems intent on staying with the "Creators" theme for Windows 10, at this point. Insiders will see different versions of the new privacy interface, allowing Microsoft to see which options might work best for a wider audience.

With the latest privacy update now being tested by Windows Insiders, Microsoft is adding two new options to let users control the data gathered while using tools for typing, inking, and device location.

Microsoft did not comment on the reported name or an official release date. Moreover, as a mode, removing the S restrictions will now be free, regardless of which version of Windows it's applied to.

"Since that time, we've received great feedback from customers and partners on Windows 10 S", Windows corporate vice president Joe Belfiore said in a blog post. Or is it merely a reminder that Windows 10 version 1709 includes additional protective features that previous versions don't include?
