AFAIK, on Windows 10 S you can only install software from the Microsoft

in all countries in Europe since October 1st, 2019.

Yes, that is correct.

So I tried looking for an answer perhaps in the support forums, to see if
anyone had reported a problem or vice versa.
No luck. In fact I could only find one reference to Win 10 S in the Ask
forum (searched in the en and fr boards) and all that was about was some
guy failing to install LO from the main website because he was running 10 S.
Also checked some of the other bbs style forums but again nothing.

Then I tried searching for any magazine or blog posts about LibreOffice in
the MS Store, but again that was less then fruitful. In fact all I cam up
with were articles about an earlier MS Store offering from an
unknown source, not the CIB Vanilla offering, and which spent most of their
ink on that and not the actual software.

Anyway, I have a few hours today to put into this so I'll just go with what
I know so far.

Best wishes,

One, last hopefully, question specifically for the case where a person
installed Vanilla Libreoffice under Windows 10 S(ecurity) mode.

Are there any limitations with regards to extensions, specifically
downloading from the TDF extension site by the user, in this type of

I suspect that is a question that may not have a definitive answer as it
may depend site specific security protocols, but I don't know. (sorry, I
don't have access to a Win 10 S box or I'd try it myself).

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

Best wishes,


ps. I was also wondering how many people out there might be running Win
S and the best guess I could come up with is something less then %6.5
percent of desktops running Win 10. That number I found as the market
for the Edge browser which is mandated when in S mode.
