Microsoft unveiled Windows 10 S during the MicrosoftEDU event and the latest SKU of the operating system will only run applications that are designed for the Windows Store in its quest to be a Chromebook competitor in the educational segment.

Chrome vs. Edge

Unfortunately, there is still a problem with Windows 10 competing with Chrome OS. While Chrome is frequently updated by Google, Microsoft Edge is only updated in new feature builds for Windows 10 — or twice a year.

Internal sources suggest this will change starting this September, when the next feature update for Windows 10, Redstone 3, will launch. Users will be able to get updates for the Edge browser via the Windows Store, allowing Microsoft to add new features more frequently. This doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to uninstall the browser by right-clicking on it in the Start Menu, though. Even if this might be implemented sometime in the future, it probably won’t happen as the company wants more users to use the browser. Microsoft wants to use the latest Edge features to show off the newest  Windows 10 updates. One of the most important announcements concerning last year’s Anniversary Update was browser extensions, while the Creators Update added better tab management and ebook support.

If you currently search for Microsoft Edge in Windows Store, you’ll get a message that says “Microsoft Edge is already installed.” After you click Go now, your default browser will open up a page describing what you can do in Edge, making the browser more capable of competing with Chrome.

Microsoft’s Build 2017 developer conference starts May 10th and the company is likely to show off lots of new features to be expected with Redstone 3.
