Microsoft just made it much easier for users to try Windows 10 S on all Windows 10 PCs. The company will release an installer for Windows 10 S that will allow users to install the OS on other versions of Windows 10.

This installer comes as a standard executable file, will download Windows 10 S, and then install it on your machine regardless of what version of Windows 10 you might be running. The only important thing is that you are not a Windows 10 Home user.

Microsoft also launched an official ISO for Windows 10 S the other week that offers users the opportunity to try out the operating system on a virtual machine or an actual hardware. This new installer, on the other hand, makes thing much easier and users can try out the latest version of Windows quicker now.

In case you haven’t met Windows 10 S…

If you are not familiar with Windows 10 S, it’s the new version of Windows 10 built for Microsoft’s education customers and budget consumers. While running this new version of Windows 10, you will only be able to install apps coming from the Windows Store while still enjoying maximum security and performance.

Windows 10 S also comes with Microsoft’s BitLocker encryption system for securing your data in case of theft. Some versions of Windows 10 Home don’t have this feature available. Windows 10 S also receives the same updates at the same time as the other versions of Windows 10.
