    Windows 10 S Mode is a configuration that is designed to give you faster boot times, longer battery life, and better security. However, with Windows 10 S, you can’t use certain web browsers or download any apps that are not in the Microsoft Store.

    To turn off Windows 10 S Mode, click the Start button then go to Settings > Update & Security > Activation. Select Go to the Store and click Get under the Switch out of S Mode panel. Then click Install and wait for the process to finish.Take note that switching out of S Mode is a one-way process. Once you’ve switched out, there’s no going back. So, make sure that you want to disable S Mode for good before you proceed.    Open the Windows Start Menu.    Then select Settings.    Next, click Update & Security.    Then select Activation. You can find this in the left sidebar of the Settings window.    Next, click Go to the Store. You’ll see this next to a shopping bag icon with the Windows logo. Clicking on it will open up a new window in the Microsoft Store that says Switch out of S Mode.

        Then click Get. This will be a blue button located just below the description.    Finally, click Install and wait for the process to finish. Once finished, you’ll see a pop-up box that says, “You’re all set! You have switched out of S mode and can now install apps from outside the Store.”Now that you know how to turn off Windows 10 S Mode, check out our list of the best Windows 10 apps for your computer to find out what to download.

    First you must have internet on computer to get out of the mode. Go to Settings then go to Update & Security. Click on Activation. Youll see Switch to Windows 10 Home or Switch to Windows 10 Pro. Select Go To Store. On the Switch S Mode that appears select "Get" then you'll see a Confirmation that its ok to install apps etc
