How to Reset Windows Mixed Reality Home to Default in Windows 10


Mixed reality blends real-world and virtual content into hybrid environments where physical and digital objects coexist and interact.

Windows Mixed Reality is the first spatial operating system. Instead of using a flat screen and a 2D interface, it leverages our instinctual ability to navigate three-dimensional space. Every place has a purpose, and content has context. Just as your PC starts at the desktop interface and your phone begins with a home screen, Windows Mixed Reality starts at the mixed reality home. It's an environment that you can navigate and personalize to make your own. It's the canvas for the thousands of apps available in the Microsoft Store. You can multitask with these apps like you've never been able to before--in 3D where space almost limitless.

You can reset your home as needed to return the apps and content in the Windows Mixed Reality home to the factory default layout.

This tutorial will show you how to reset the Windows Mixed Reality home to the factory default layout for your account in Windows 10.
