Living with S Mode: Core Apps (Premium)

Living with S Mode: Apps

In the previous article in this series, I focused on my experiences using writing apps with Windows 10 Pro in S mode. This makes sense: I'm a writer, after all. But writing is still just part of what I do with a PC every day. And to better understand what works---and what doesn't work---with Windows 10 in S mode, it's helpful to examine the other apps I regularly use.

And it's a pretty concise list, to be honest. This is partially because I now engage in consumption activities---reading, watching videos, social media, and so on---on mobile devices for the most part. But it's also because I review different PCs pretty regularly, so I'm often moving on to the next one. I like to travel light.
