In S Mode, Windows 10 or Windows 11 is a more restricted, locked-down version of the Windows operating system.

In Windows 10 S Mode, you can only install programs from the Store and use Microsoft Edge to access the web.

Other browsers can be installed through the Microsoft Store on Windows 11 S Mode, but Edge will always be your default browser.

Malware from the internet will be unable to run since Windows can only launch programs from the Store.

Intel CPUs are found in many S Mode PCs. S Mode may be enabled on any type of PC, 

and Windows 10 on ARM PCs are not required to utilize S Mode.

If all you need is a simple Microsoft Edge web browser, Microsoft Office software like Word,

and anything else from the Microsoft Store, you should consider running the PC in S Mode.

The S Mode limits give further malware protection.
