Windows 10 S has many limitations

The US based software giant, Microsoft showed us its new operating system to compete with Chrome OS. While the software maker emphasizes that only Windows Store applications will work on Windows 10 S, Windows chief Terry Myerson noted that the new operating system could run any Internet browser on the Windows Store. It is true that the new operating system will run any internet browser in the Store, but Microsoft does not allow users to change the default internet browser in this new operating system.

 




 

On the frequently asked questions page for Windows 10 S, Microsoft says that users can download any Internet browser from the Windows Store. However, for operations such as opening an HTML file, the default Internet browser will continue to be Microsoft Edge. This means that if you click on a web link in another application or want to open a link in an message, you will be sent to the Microsoft Edge Internet browser. It is not known if Google will bring Chrome into the Windows Store, but it will not be much functionality until it’s the default browser on the operating system. In this case, there will be no logical move.

 




 

Meanwhile, Microsoft is also putting some obstacles in its Internet browser Edge. The default search provider can not be changed in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Bing will at least be the default service for the US, maybe we can see Yandex as a search provider on computers in Asia. Microsoft does not want users to switch to Google or another search provider. This is not a situation where Windows users are accustomed to, but hopefully in the future Windows 10 S users will get more freedom.
