Windows 11/10 Retail demo basically gives customers a run-down of the features that the new operating system has to offer.

Retailers who have a valid account can view the demo of the app at WindowsRetailDemo.com.
Now click on “Windows” 5 times, and you will see a blue box appear asking if you want to Change to retail demo.
Clicking on Change button will start the retail demo – BUT as mentioned earlier, it will delete all your user settings and data, and even restore your computer to factory settings. So you want to click on Cancel and exit.
Delete Windows 11/10 Retail Demo
While using the Disk Cleanup tool in Windows 11/10, I noticed this entry – RetailDemo Offline Content.
So if you wish to delete this Retail Demo and save disk space, use the built-in Disk Cleanup utility. This will clear 100MB of disk space!
Commenters say: You cannot simply use Windows Disk Cleanup to delete the Retail Demo Offline Content. It requires a password. The password of Retail Demo Admin account is trs10.
