I think all the new ones are S mode
I really dont think in reality it's done for safety
I think it's a marketing tool to discourage using software outside of Microsoft
It was actually a very simple fix
Just initial frustration because I never encountered this before.

I never said that is was for "safety", i said to 'increase security and performance".

About Windows 10 in S mode

Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.

I believe that's Microsoft propaganda
The reality is to increase sales at the microsoft store and not to spend money on Steam
Hmm
So many cool games out there on Steam
When it comes to games. The Microsoft store sucks
