Description: 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.

Review: While ‘Desktop Portal’ isn’t the first app to offer a virtual Desktop Portal (or is it a virtual, virtual Desktop Portal?) it is one of the better ones and is far easier to work with than OVR Toolkit. It has all you need and was easy to set up and use. Programs like this are especially useful with windows mixed reality headsets as you can stack multiple programs on one side of the screen. Sur,e I wish it had more options, but the developer is proactive and willing to take on any suggestions people have and that gets the thumbs up for me. Most people will have no real need for this, but those who do should probably give this a look before trying any others.
