Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Factory Reset State/Remote Wipe

Hey everyone,

Unfortunately I have misplaced my HoloLens and will probably not be able to recover it. As I understand it, the device does not have GPS. Navigating to https://account.microsoft.com/devices shows my HoloLens since I registered it with my live account, but clicking on the device in the portal just redirects to the same page. Since I sign in with my live account on the device, if some kind soul turns it on they'll see my email address.

I updated it to the build was available in the main stream on the 16th. At this point, is there anything I can do to further locate the device or put it into lost mode like the iPhone has? Anything would be greatly appreciated.
