Desktop Portal

A VR App available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift & Valve Index

Desktop Portal is an Addon for SteamVR that aims to bridge the gap of using your desktop while in VR, and provide easy access to common things you would want to do in VR.


What is this?

Desktop Portal is an advanced Addon for SteamVR, with a suite of tools that make doing previously difficult things in VR easy!


- Desktop Portal requires Windows 10 for full functionality.

- Oculus headsets are supported, but only for games that can be run in OpenVR mode. Please be wary of this.

- This is early access, and the program it's beginning stages. Things may be buggy/broken. Please take this into account.

- It cannot currently capture any programs running as Admin. (AKA Task Manager). A fix for that is in the works ;)
