Microsoft extends free Windows 10 S upgrade offer through March 2018

We like the word “FREE” don’t we. Microsoft has extended the Windows 10 S to 10 Pro upgrade offer until March 31, 2018. Microsoft originally intended to end this offer in December but we welcome the extension they are now offering.

Windows 10 S is being positioned for the education market as a more secure version of Windows 10 because it only allows apps from the Windows Store to be installed. It also happens to come as the default operating system on the Surface Laptop. If find you need to install an app that is only available outside of the Windows Store, the ability to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro at any time is handy to have, particularly through the free promotion. Once the promotion ends in March, however, Microsoft is expected to charge upwards of $49 to upgrade.

Switch to previously installed Windows 10 editions

If Windows 10 S is not right for you, you can switch to the Windows 10 edition previously installed on your device(s).+
