I need to get out of S-mode ASAP!! After SEVERAL tries it let me at one point ... then I re-started my laptop and BAM! Back in S-mode. Cannot open two apps I downloaded and use on the regular!! Every time I go to the store and "GET" - NOTHING happens!!!!!!!! How do you get it to work?
As I said, the way out of it is using the MS Store and if that does not work, you are stuck.
Your real answer is buying a Windows laptop that is not S Mode -- and that requires you do some research into the specific laptop model before you buy it -- or buy from somewhere that has a good return policy so that if you get stuck in the same situation again, you can easily return it and get a refund -- which is what I would do if this were mine.
