My laptop is won't allow me to download software that's not in the Microsoft store?

My laptop is the HP Pavilion 15. I recently upgraded windows 10 to see if it'll fix my situation but it did not.

@aracelyg947 

Some PCs running Win10 are using S mode -- which limits them to install apps only from the MS store.

 

To see if yours is running S mode, do the following: 

Settings > System > About.

On the About page, scroll down to the “Windows Specifications” section. 

If you see the words “in S mode” to the right the Edition entry, you're using an S Mode PC.
