Just for fun: Retail demo user names in Windows 10

Raymond Chen

Some time ago, I went to all the locales I could find and extracted the sample names that are used to help you set up an account.

Just for fun, I’ll do the same for the name used by the fictitious account used by the retail demo experience. This special mode is used when a computer is set up on a sales floor and runs an attract loop.
