  1. Switching out of Windows 10 Home in S Mode


    I have Windows 10 Home in S Mode and want to run an "unnverified by Microsoft" app on my machine, but I can't. It prompted me to go to Microsoft Store to change to Windows 10 Home for free in order to do so, and when I do, it won't work. After selecting the "Get" button on the item in the Microsoft Store, I get the message "Working On It" and just stay on this same screen and progress no further. This has happened continually over the 2 days. What else can I try?

    :)
