Windows 11 SE is not sold separately, ‘back’ after uninstallation is not possible

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced Windows 11 SE, a slimmed-down version of Windows 11 that will compete with Chrome OS. It should be similar to the deprecated Windows 10X and Windows 10 S, but there are some limitations.

In a document Microsoft explains in detail how it can be purchased, how the operating system is marketed and how it can be managed. It states that it is not directly intended for consumers. Microsoft is targeting educational institutions, which manage the systems from the cloud and lock certain properties. It is not intended to be sold separately like Windows 11 Home and Pro.

The software maker does write that, if you wish, you can purchase a regular Windows 11 license yourself, remove Windows 11 SE and install Windows 11 yourself. However, you cannot go back to Windows 11 SE after that. You can only get the SE version by buying a laptop with it pre-installed.
