About This Software

Desktop+ is a powerful, yet lightweight tool for SteamVR bringing your desktops and windows into the VR world. No matter if you just need a more reliable desktop view in your dashboard or a complex context-aware multi-overlay setup with custom shortcuts, Desktop+ offers a wide array of tweakable settings to make the overlays fit your needs.


  • User interface with real-time adjustments accessible in VR or on desktop
  • Smooth, low-latency mirroring of desktops and windows
  • Low memory footprint and performance impact
  • Support for creating as many overlays as SteamVR allows at once
  • Customizable overlay settings (width, position, curvature, opacity, cropping), with switchable profiles
  • 3D support (SBS, HSBS, OU, HOU)
  • Overlay visibility and origin settings: Display a desktop/window during gameplay or attach it to a different origin (play space, dashboard, HMD, controllers, tracker)
  • Actions: User-definable functions (input simulation, running applications) which can be bound to controller or UI buttons
  • Keyboard Extension, enabling use of modifier, arrow and function keys from the SteamVR keyboard
  • Elevated access toggle, making it possible to deal with UAC prompts and other UIP-restricted UI in VR without using full admin-access at all times
  • Gaze Fade: Fade-out overlay when not looking at it
  • Window Management: Change window focus depending on overlay/dashboard state or drag overlays when dragging the title bar of a mirrored window
  • Performance Monitor: View system performance in real time
