This update will be downloaded and installed if you go to the Windows Settings Update & Security Windows Update page, and click Check online for updates from Microsoft Update.

Microsoft confirmed yesterday that its lightweight, education-focused Windows 10 S operating system will soon be turned into a mode that can be switched on and off, instead of a full operating system.

Windows 10 S was created to simplify administration for school sysadmins by running only apps from the Windows Store and designed to run on low-priced hardware.

Some Windows 10 users will now see this screen. You can also install the update manually by downloading it from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Those who have Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro will be able to switch to the S Mode in order to have a faster and more intuitive user experience.

The main cause is probably the shortage of apps in the Microsoft Store. Futuresource reported that Google's Chromebooks continue to dominate the US school market, with a 59.6 percent share in the fourth quarter of 2017, but added that Microsoft has seen growing adoption through its expanding lineup of lower-cost, education-focused Windows devices.

Microsoft will bring new S Mode to all editions of Windows 10.

"We expect the majority of customers to enjoy the benefits of Windows 10 in S mode. I think it's totally fine/good that it's not mentioned". Otherwise, if you have a PC that's still running the Creators Update (version 1703), the update should be available now via Windows Update. Users can now upgrade such devices to the full version of Windows 10 for a $50 fee.
