    Is there *any* way to exit Windows 10 Home S mode whilst using...


    ...A local account? I am setting-up a new Laptop and S mode is new to me. As many of you will know, S mode apparently means that you can only download from the Microsoft store.

    I much prefer to use a local account because I believe (rightly or wrongly) that it offers more privacy and I don't really want to use any of the additional features that come with a Microsoft-linked account.

    I have followed the guides available on YouTube and with all it seems you need a 'linked' account top switch to Windows 10 Home from Windows 10 S Mode.

    is there any way to do this with a local account at all?

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi Rubbish. Welcome to TenForums @Rubbish

    Have you seen our tutorial

    Switch out of S mode in Windows 10 for Free

    It says you have to be an administrator. I know you have to use store but I've used store without an account. Yes it will ask if you have an account or suggest you to use an account.
