Microsoft's confirmed Wednesday's tweets about Windows 10 S becoming a "mode" available in all versions of Windows and added a prediction it'll be used by a "majority" of users.

"Starting with the next update to Windows 10, coming soon, customers can choose to buy a new Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro PC with S mode enabled, and commercial customers will be able to deploy Windows 10 Enterprise with S mode enabled", Belfiore explained.

Microsoft is planning to reuse its "Creators Update" naming for a third Windows 10 update.

This is quite a different stance than Microsoft took with its Surface Laptop when it launched with Windows 10 S last summer.

Some of you may have seen a discussion around our plans for Windows 10 S on Twitter today, and given some additional questions I've received, I thought it might be helpful to share more about our plans with Windows 10 S. Further, Joe Belfiore stated that there was confusion about this version of the OS from Microsoft's partners and consumers.

It's also worth noting that there are now no known issues with Windows 10 build 17115. Even though there is no definite timeline given by the Redmond-based software giant, we expect the company to push Windows 10 S within the next few months. Moreover, it delivers predictable performance and quality with the help of Microsoft-verified apps via the Microsoft Store.

It's unclear for now what such a change might mean for people who bought devices built on Windows 10 S, which has since also been targeted at "first-line" employees who deal directly with customers. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the US school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices. Now the S mode option will be available in Windows 10 Home and Enterprise editions, too.

Windows 10 is created to be compatible with the hardware, software, and peripherals you already own.
