I purchased a new laptop that uses Windows 10 in S mode. I can only download apps from the Windows store. I would like to use Adobe Digital Editions but can't download it unless I opt out of Windows S (which I don't want to do at the moment). Any suggestions as to how to open acsm files using a product from Microsoft store?  Or any other method?

The laptop I bought is a cheap HP Stream (Intel processor).  Not sure if it will run smoothly if I reconfigure it out of S mode and I know you can't go back to S mode once you opt out.  Have you heard of any problems once switched out of S mode?

As far as i know, switching out of S Mode only removes the software install restrictions.

Performance should remain the same.

Instead of trying to download Adobe, go to MicroSoft Store and download PDF X software instead.  Assuming it's Microsoft's knock-off version of Adobe.  Now I'm able to review and edit Adobe files, whereas before I could not review Adobe files.  Hope this helps!
