How to Clear Environment Data for Windows Mixed Reality in Windows 10

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

A boundary defines the area in which you can move around while you're wearing your Windows Mixed Reality immersive headset. Because you can't see your surroundings while you're using your headset, it's important to create a boundary to help you avoid obstacles. The boundary looks like a white outline inside mixed reality, and appears when you come close to it. When you see it, slow your movements, and avoid crossing the boundary or extending your limbs beyond it.

The tracking system stores some environment data so that it can recall the real-world physical location of things like your boundary. This information, including your boundary, can be removed at any time.

If you clear this data, some app content may disappear from your environment, the system will no longer recognize your space, and you will no longer see the boundary you set up. If you wish to create the boundary again, you will have to set it up again.
