Can we download files from the browser like we used to do in windows 10 pro?
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Sure. Why not?
Yea its just .exe that can't be opened although im sure someone will find a work around that soon after release if for some reason you don't want to or can't upgrade to full windows.
Guys, the workaround to run EXE's IS changing to Windows 10 Pro, which is free for some time. That is literally the only major difference. (save for S not supporting a small subset of Store apps involving the Linux subsystem I believe)
For sure you can download files on Windows 10S. Imagine if students, primary target for this device, cannot download and stock PDF files on their laptops.
The only restriction is for *.exe files which cannot be executed. It was showed during the Surface Laptop keynote.
