Windows 10 'Redstone 4' official name looks to be Spring Creators Update

Windows 10

Microsoft's confirmed Wednesday's tweets about Windows 10 S becoming a "mode" available in all versions of Windows and added a prediction it'll be used by a "majority" of users.

You can either purchase Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro PC with S mode enabled.

It's been a while since Microsoft released a new Windows 10 build to the Slow ring, but today, the company released build 17115. Belfiore called out the security, faster boot time, better battery life and consistent performance that Windows 10's S mode produces. Belfiore declared that Windows 10 S will be a new mode of the pre-existing versions of next year's operating systems and definitely not a "distinct version". Further, Joe Belfiore stated that there was confusion about this version of the OS from Microsoft's partners and consumers.

Microsoft will bring new S Mode to all editions of Windows 10.

Other updates in the Windows 10 preview build released yesterday are aimed at fixing glitches that users might have encountered with OneDrive files, the Microsoft Store, Windows Mixed Reality, and touchpad/touch keyboard usage. One of the largest gaps in app store coverage is the lack of choices for internet browsers; Windows 10 S users are pretty much stuck with the Edge browser bundled with the OS.

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. Despite introduction on the expensive Surface Laptop shown above, Windows 10 S has primarily been found on low-priced machines for the education sector. Next year 10S will be the mode for existing versions, not a separate Assembly. So... Windows 10 S users in an educational setting can now upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free, but "a fee may apply" to everyone else.

Windows 10 is created to be compatible with the hardware, software, and peripherals you already own.
