    The biggest one is it's more susceptible to malware b/c Win32 apps (anything that installs via a .exe or .msi) are enabled. In S mode, it's locked to Store apps.

    Want AdGuard? You’ll need to switch out. Does your pswd mgr need to be installed outside S mode? Want to use Chrome?

    Ad Guard is a Store app, I have it for Edge. I’m not sure if it’s going to continue working once the full switch to Chromium is complete but.....

    I only see Adblock, not AdGuard in Store. And is the extension version as good as AG Pro version that you would need to install?

    I use to see on XDA that Google was feeling the need to offer some support for adblocking but that’s another reason I use AdGuard install, I like that it works with whatever browser I choose.

    The Adblock extension in Edge isn’t cutting it for me.

    Just search for "AdGuard" in the Store, it's there, and the Edge extension works well.adguard-store.jpg

    Have you tried ublock origins? It's available for Edge so I'd imagine you can get it in S mode too. I use it and it works great.

    Just safely install Malwarebytes Anti-malware.
