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

    How many times have you been immersed in a captivating virtual experience and

    2. Wanted to reach for a drink, your phone or a keyboard?
    3. Needed to find a surface to set down your controllers?

    Opening the windows mixed reality portal freezes my pc

    Hi OPretzel,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    • What is the make and model of your PC?
    • Do you see any error code/message upon PC freeze?
    • Are you aware of any changes that happened on the PC prior to this issue?


    I suggest you to try the methods listed below and check if it works for you:



    Method 1

    Check for Updates:

    One of the possible reasons for Windows Mixed Reality not working correctly is the outdated software. I suggest you to check if there are any pending updates and ensure your Windows 10 is up to date. Refer
    Update Windows 10, to know how to check for updates.



    Method 2

    Update Firmware:

    • Right click the Windows icon on the taskbar and choose
      Device Manager
      .
    • Expand Mixed Reality Devices, right click the headset device, and choose
      Update Driver.
    • Restart the machine, and open Mixed Reality portal to see if the issue persists.


    Method 3

    Uninstall and Reinstall Windows Mixed Reality:

    • Go to Settings >
      Mixed reality > Uninstall
      and select Uninstall.
    • Restart your computer. To start the setup process again, just plug your headset into your PC.


    For more troubleshooting tips on Windows Mixed Reality, refer
    Troubleshooting Windows Mixed Reality.



    If the issue persists, check the Applications and System Event Logs in Windows (using Event Viewer) and let us know what the logs say at the time of crash.
