    How to Create Boundary 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 area inside the boundary should be free of furniture and other obstacles, including the area above you (think about low-hanging light fixtures or ceiling fans). This way, you'll know that as long as you stay inside the boundary, you won't bump into or trip over anything.

    When you first set up your headset, you'll have a chance to create a boundary. If you choose not to create a boundary during setup, you can create one at any time.

    Some apps might be designed to work with a boundary, so you might not be able to use them, or might not have the same experience, if you use them without a boundary.

    If someone new uses your headset, make sure they understand the boundary and how to use it. And if you move your headset to a new location, you'll need to set up a new boundary that works for that space.

    This tutorial will show you how to set up and create a new boundary in Windows Mixed Reality for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Connect your headset to your PC's USB 3.0 port and HDMI out port. Do not put on your headset.

    2. Open the Mixed Reality Portal app from your Start menu.

    3. Click/tap on the Menu (3 lines) icon, and click/tap on Run setup. (see screenshot below)

    4. Click/tap on Set me up for all experiences. (see screenshot below)

    5. Clear some space in your room for running mixed reality (e.g. clear some floor space and move your chair to the side of the room). We recommend you at clear at least 5 foot x 7 foot (1.5 meters x 2 meters) of space for mixed reality, and click/tap on Next when ready to continue. (see screenshot below)

    6. Hold your headset in front of you in the center of your room and point it toward your computer. Click/tap on Center when available. (see screenshot below)

    7. Stand up and point your headset toward your computer, and click/tap on Trace when ready to trace your boundary. (see screenshot below)

    8. Walk around the perimeter of your space keeping the headset pointed at your PC until you have gone all the way around it. Click/tap on Accept when it has finished tracing. (see screenshots below)

    *note You can click/tap on Start over at any time if you make a mistake.

    10. When finished, you can close the Mixed Reality Portal app if you like.


    That's it,
