Microsoft wants you to beta test Windows 10 S


Microsoft has announced a major shake-up in the testing for Windows 10 S.

The software giant has announced that its new OS can now be tried out by all members of the Windows Insiders program.

Interested testers need to have run Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise to be able to install it.

Keep in mind that this is a beta, so it might be wise to back up any and all files before proceeding.

"By exclusively using apps in the Windows Store and ensuring that you browse safely with Microsoft Edge and keeps you running fast and secure," Microsoft said in its announcement blog.

"It is ideal for people who have everything they need in the Windows Store and prefer the peace of mind of secure and verified Windows Store applications. Windows Insiders can try Windows 10 S on their PCs and join the Windows Insider Program via Settings > Update & security > Windows Insider Program to receive Insider Preview builds for Windows 10 S just as they would on other editions of Windows 10."
