My Windows 10 S PC won't install some apps. Is that normal?
If you have a Windows 10 PC running Windows 10 S (such as a Surface Laptop), you may notice that it won't install apps from outside the Microsoft Store. Don't worry—that's the way we designed it.
By exclusively running apps from the Microsoft Store, Windows 10 S helps keep your PC running fast and secure and provides peace of mind by removing the risks that come with downloading apps from other places.
I want to use a different browser or search engine.
Microsoft Edge is the default web browser on Windows 10 S, and Bing is the default search engine in Microsoft Edge. You can install any browser available in the Microsoft Store and browse to any other search engine website.
If you want to install a browser (or any other app) not in the Microsoft Store, you'll need to switch to Windows 10 Pro.
