* From your desktop, press Win + R from your keyboard, input regedit.exe in Run dialog box and click OK button.
* Within Registry Editor, navigate to the tree below:

Go to its right pane, right click on “FirstRunSucceeded“, and select Delete option.
Return to the left side pane, highlight the sub-key “SpeechAndAudio“, and remove the “PreferDesktopSpeaker” and “PreferDesktopMic“.

and remove all contents inside the SpatialStore folder completely.

* Type PowerShell in Cortana search box or Start menu, right click on PowerShell, and select “Run as administrator” option.
Type the command:

and press Enter to remove Feature-On-Demand CAB. The FOD CAB is relied by Mixed Reality and downloaded during a user’s initial experience, so you need to uninstall it.
