Delete Windows 10 Retail Demo

While using the Disk Cleanup tool in Windows 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.
