A clever member of the Oculus subreddit, NeoZeroo, created a neat little program called HomeUnhider that unhides Oculus Home on your desktop. Use your keyboard and mouse in Oculus Home while your Rift sits next to you — here's all you need to know!
How to download and install HomeUnhider
- Launch the Oculus app from your Start menu, desktop, or taskbar.
Launch your favorite web browser from the Start menu, desktop, or taskbar.
- Navigate to the HomeUnhider download file.
Click Save. Your download will begin.
- Launch File Explorer from the Start menu, desktop, or taskbar.
Click Extract All.
- Click Extract.
A window will now pop up on your desktop that mirrors whatever you're seeing within Oculus Home.
How to use HomeUnhider
Now that you have an Oculus Home window on your desktop, you can resize it using your mouse. Do not try to make it fullscreen, as it will just disappear.
Using HomeUnhider means you don't necessarily need to have the Rift on your face, so you can use your keyboard and mouse to navigate. Here are the controls.
|Device||Xbox Controller||Mouse / Keyboard|
|A||Left-click / Spacebar|
|B||Right-click / Esc|
Give it a try?
