Microsoft has some time ago launched its Surface Laptop at an event recently which runs on the latest Operating System Windows 10 S. The latest operating system is however limited in running apps installed from the Windows Store since it is mainly aimed at the educational sector.

The apps downloaded from the Windows Store basically provides users with more security by limiting malware and viruses and delivering better battery and device performance.

The Redmond Giant had earlier confirmed that users on the Surface laptop will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free until the end of this year and will need to pay a nominal charge once the free download deadline is expired.

The company also warned the Windows 10 S users that they will not be able to revert back to the Windows 10 S OS once they upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. But now the company has announced that users will be able to infact revert back to Windows 10 S from Windows 10 Pro but would need to sacrifice their data.

Users wanting to revert back to Windows 10 S from Windows 10 Pro would have to sacrifice their data since reverting will wipe of all the data on the Surface Laptop due to some of the applications having an unpredictable effect during reverting to a different version of Windows.

Hence to avoid the effect on the apps installed it is advised by Microsoft to wipe of the data and revert to Windows 10 S from Windows 10 Pro version to have a great performance with the Operating System and applications.
