Microsoft said the switch from Windows 10 S to Pro is one-way only; users can not revert back to Windows 10 S.
The move is created to stop students installing malicious software, but will also stop schools from taking advantage of freeware applications such as GIMP, a popular free alternative to Photoshop.
The price of the laptop is $999 with new Windows 10 S installed in it. For starters, you are limited to browsers that are available on the Store and for the time being, neither Chrome, Firefox, or Opera are there.
All schools now running Windows 10 Pro can receive a free update to Windows 10 S.
The operating system has been designed for use in educational environments and includes many features suited to students - such as the free inclusion of a one-year Microsoft Office 365 subscription and Intune for Education.
