How do I switch out of S mode in Windows 10?

Windows 10 in S mode is designed for security and performing, allowing only apps to be downloaded and installed from Microsoft Store. Until you switch out of S mode, you're not allowed to install a desktop app. Switching out of S mode is one way and free of charge. If you switch out of it, there's no going back. To switch out of S mode: 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + I and click "Update & Security" > "Activation." 2. In the "Switch to Windows 10 Home" or "Switch to Windows 10 Pro" section, click "Go to the Store." (If you also see "Upgrade your edition of Windows," try not to click "Go to the Store.") 3. In Microsoft Store, the "Switch out of S mode" (or similar) page appears. Click the "Get" button. After seeing a confirmation message, you'll be able to install desktop apps outside of Microsoft Store.
