Microsoft is releasing an installer for Windows 10 S that’ll let users install the OS in other versions of Windows 10. The installer comes as a regular .exe file, and it will download Windows 10 S and install it on your device regardless of what version of Windows 10 you are running — as long as you’re not a Windows 10 Home user. Redmond also released official ISOs for Windows 10 S last weekthat allows users to try out the OS on a virtual machine or actual hardware, but the new installer makes it much easier for users to try out the new version of Windows 10.

Windows 10 S, for those unfamiliar, is a new version of Windows 10 built for Microsoft’s education customers and affordable PCs. The new version of Windows 10 only lets you install apps from the Windows Store, and it’s also supposed to offer better security and performance in the long-term.

You can download the new installer for Windows 10 S from here.
