Has anyone managed to install Chrome browser (or any other browser) on a Windows 10S or 10S2 machine?

An indegent client offered to pay me with a new Windows Surface Laptop running 10S2. If I do take it as payment and keep it for myself, I'd hate to be stuck using Edge exclusively.

I looked around the Windows Store and didn't see any 3rd party browsers.

Don't need another computer but this may be the only payment available. The client's business just went down the toilet... hopefully not the laptop :)

Full versions of windows 10 allow this. Windows 10S is marketed as being locked down in this way. In a polite way, you have to teach him to read about it.

Hopefully, he can return any devices purchased with that version of the OS.
