    Is there any time limit to do free switch from Windows 10 S mode to Windows 10 Home?


    Hello,


    Just bought a laptop with Windows 10 S mode installed. I understand that there is currently "no charge" if I switch from Windows 10 S mode to Windows 10 Home.


    Here is my question -


    Is there a time limit to do this one-way "free" switch such as end of 2020 or 2021? I want to experiment with Windows 10 S for some time before I can decide to switch or not.


    windows.com/windows10sfaq does not address the "time limit" to do "free switch"! I hope there is no time limit meaning free switch forever!


    Thank you in advance for your ans,

    Patrick

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
