  1. Windows Defender on windows 10 in S mode


    Hi all, I’ll apologize in advance for my lack of terminology because I haven’t had a laptop in quite some time. I just bought a Lenovo ideapad S145 laptop today. It says the operating system is windows 10 home in S mode. I was wondering what the difference is between windows 10 and windows 10 in “S mode”? And does the S mode come with windows defender to protect against viruses and such? Also, should I download any other anti virus programs even if it does have windows defender? TIA

    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

  4. Windows Defender on windows 10 in S mode

    "Attestation" A new feature coming to Windows Defender in Windows 10

    Tech Republic - Upcoming Windows Defender feature will tell you when security fails
    This seems very promising. Microsoft is in the unique position to know what Windows should look like, even before Windows Update pushes out new changes. As long as MS can properly sync WD with WU changes AND this new features does not make any "noticeable" hit on system performance/resources, all without any false positives, this should be a big step forward for consumer security, and a blow to the bad guys - always a good thing.

    Of course, there will likely be some hiccups the Windows/Microsoft/Windows Defender bashers will surely pounce on - regardless how extensive the Beta process is. But hopefully open and unbiased minds will prevail. After all, the goal is to stop the bad guys and if this gets us closer to that, that's a very good thing.
