In the latest build announcement blog post, Microsoft reminded Windows Insiders that the newest member of the Windows family, Windows 10 S is available for testing in its own Insider program.

There’s nothing new here, as Windows 10 S has been available to Insiders ever since Microsoft made available for download on August 1st. But the company decided to remind Insiders they have another option once again. Maybe the number of Insiders in Windows 10 S Preview program is lower than expected? Who knows.

Here’s what Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar says about Windows 10 S Preview:

“Windows 10 S brings the experiences Windows users know and love, streamlined for security and performance…. 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.”

If you’re interested in participating to Windows 10 S Preview program, you can download the official installer, and start right away. Just have in mind that you’ll only be able to do so if you have Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise edition, as Windows 10 S upgrade is not compatible with Windows 10 Home.
