Windows S mode only allows installing software from the MS Store.  If you wanted to install other items, you should have done more research before you bought this PC, because this is a known limitation of S Mode PCs.

Hi, @Prashanthigupta 


You can switch out of Windows S mode by reading the info at the link below.


If you do that, you can't go back to S mode.
