Xbox One Developer Mode deactivation
If you decide you no longer want to use your console for development, use the following steps to deactivate Developer Mode.
Switch to Retail Mode
First, return your Xbox One console to Retail Mode.
Open Dev Home.
Select Leave Dev Mode. Your console will restart in Retail Mode.
Now deactivate your console by using one of the following methods.
Deactivate your console using the Dev Mode Activation app
The preferred method of deactivating Developer Mode on your console is to use the Dev Mode Activation app.
Navigate to Games & apps > Apps.
Open the Dev Mode Activation app.
See Xbox One Developer Mode activation for more information about the Dev Mode Activation app.
Reset your console
You can also deactivate Developer Mode by resetting your console.
When you reset your console, all local save game data will be lost.
To reset your console perform the following steps:
Go to My games & apps.
Select Apps, and then select Settings.
Go to System in the left pane, and then select Console info in the right pane.
Select Reset console.
Next, select Reset and remove everything. This option resets the console to its original retail state. All of your apps, games, and local save data will be deleted. Note that choosing the other option, Reset and keep my games & apps, will not remove your console from the developer program.
Deactivate your console using Partner Center
If you are unable to access your console for any reason, you can also deactivate Developer Mode on your console by using Partner Center.
Navigate to the Manage Xbox One consoles page in Partner Center. You may be prompted to sign in.
Find the console that you want to deactivate in the list of consoles by matching the serial number, console ID, or the device ID.
If you didn't previously return your Xbox One console to Retail Mode, do so now, as described in Switch to Retail Mode.
