    If someone creates a FOVE-compatible virtual desktop application, yes, you can! There might be one available on Steam, I haven't checked yet. Use filters "seated", "VR supported", "keyboard+mouse" to search for apps. And you need to be registered to our Steam beta to test these applications. Even if there is a compatible app, we can't guarantee yet that they work perfectly because Steam launches as beta. Check our blog for info on Steam beta.

    Hello Max and KiLLaVieT,

    If you want to use your Windows desktop, you can try this application on Steam : 
    Bigscreen Beta
    hat is free and well developed.

    It works quite nice. It even support the LeadMotion (with proper hands ^^) but I didn't succeed to use my hands...

    If you want to play a desktop game, it's possible using a "Game Mode" that lighten Bigscreen quality (disable super-sampling). And take care to chose a "light" environment (look at the leaf...).
    It even support SBS pictures / movie / games / youtube.

    I used the Razer Hydra to manipulate the app, but I think it's possible to use it just with mouse/keyboard.

    And if you know to "touch-type" on keyboard, you could be able to code and test without removing the HMD ^^ (that's not my case : / ). Whereas you can use the in-app virtual keyboard (using Vive-compatible controllers) or Windows virtual keyboard. It must not be as efficient ^^.
