Did you know that running Windows 10 devices in S mode offers a familiar and simplified Windows experience that’s streamlined for security, simplicity, and performance? With it you can avoid security issues such as ransomware, malware, and junkware and device performance decrease over time.

Windows 10 in S mode offers such features and capabilities as quick start up, built-in enterprise-level security and software updates, Microsoft verified applications, and integrated protection against phishing and malware.

Not all devices come with Windows 10 in S mode. When looking to buy a new device, ask the manufacturer, your retailer, or check the technical specifications or device packaging to see if the device you want comes in S mode.
