    This would be a dream! The Home is the most annoying thing I’ve encountered in quite a while, especially considering how cool VR is once you stumble past the home screen.

    Firing up Steam VR seems to make the painful part quicker....

    What I do is this (workaround):
    • Boot Windows
    • Start Oculus software (the software library menu)
    • Start Virtual Desktop (not Oculus' version, but Virtual Desktop made by ggodin, 13,99 euro) in the library
    • Put the Rift on your head
    • Start Assetto Corsa
    This way Oculus Home is never started and you can see your desktop and the menu of AC in your headset.

    I need to pick up Virtual Desktop. Seems a must-have.

    Thanks so much for the links. Just to clarify, if you want to run CM, the reddit solution is the way to go?

    Thanks so much for the clarification. I had bookmarked Virtual Desktop a while back. I may give it a shot to see if it makes the process smoother. I’m currently doing the typical juggle of starting from the screen, then throwing headset on, taking it back off to see what’s happening, fumbling with the controller that just rolled under the desk.... Might help with all that :)
