Rift Core 2.0 is here and sometimes learning the new settings on a system can be tasking. Here we're going to help walk you through how to pin and unpin your favorite windows to an experience so it stays in place even after you close the Dash. This way, if you prefer having your favorite YouTuber talking in the background, or a browser for music, you can make that possible.

Whether you're just curious, or you desperately want to start pinning windows, we have the details for you here.

How to pin a window on Oculus Desktop


With the new update to Rift Core 2.0 there are plenty of new features to delve into, including the ability to pin windows. This means that you can have windows that will stay open even if you navigate away from the Dash. So you can have multiple apps running in multiple windows instead of making you focus on one thing at a time.

  1. Point at the Pin to Experience button in the bottom-right corner of the window.
  2. Pull the trigger on your Touch controller.

If you accidentally pin something you didn't mean to or pinned something for a test run, don't worry. If you repeat those steps on a pinned window it will unpin it from your Desktop. This means that even if you pin a window, you can remove it again at any time without any extra hassle in the process!
