Windows 10 in S mode accessory compatibility

Microsoft has introduced Windows 10 in S mode, a specific configuration of Windows 10 that offers a familiar, productive Windows experience that’s streamlined for security and performance. Many hardware accessories and peripherals (such as printers) that work with Windows 10 Home and Pro will work with Windows 10 in S mode, though only with limited functionality in some scenarios. Please check with your accessory manufacturer to learn more. 

We are working closely with hardware accessory manufacturers to deliver great experiences for customers using Windows 10 in S mode. Below you will find links to more information from manufacturers based on those efforts. There are also links to information on accessories manufactured by Microsoft.
