If you'd like to use Oculus Link to connect your Quest to a PC, please start by reviewing our Oculus Link compatibility article.

Confirm the following:

  • Your PC meets the recommended specs.
  • You're using a high-quality USB cable capable of supporting data and power.
  • Your Oculus software is up to date on both your PC and your Quest.

If you're unable to enable Oculus Link:

  • If you don't see Add Quest as the device on the PC software: log out of the PC software and log back in.
  • If you don't see the Enable Link pop-up on the PC software: log out of the PC software and log back in.
  • If you don't see the Enable Link option under Settings on Quest: completely power off the headset and restart.

Once you've confirmed these requirements, you can begin using your Quest with Link. To do so:

  1. Open the Oculus app on your PC.
  2. Turn on your Quest 2 or Quest.
  3. Plug your USB 3 cable into a USB 3.0 port on your PC, and then plug the other end into your headset.
  4. A message displays in VR prompting you to Allow access to data. Select Deny.

    If you mistakenly 'Allow' the prompt, you must unplug your USB cable from the Quest and plug it back in.
  5. When prompted to Enable Oculus Link, select Enable to begin remote rendering using Oculus Link.

If you have issues using or setting up Oculus Link, please review our Troubleshooting Tips and Known Issues article.

You can adjust the settings for the graphic performance of your Oculus Quest 2 + Link from the Oculus app on your computer.

Quest 2 + Link
  1. Open the Oculus app on your Computer.

  2. Click Devices on the left side of the app.

  3. Click Quest and Touch.

  4. Scroll down to Graphics Preferences.

  5. Here, you can adjust your Refresh Rate and Render Resolution.

    • Refresh rate: The number of times your Quest 2 screen updates with new images each second. You can set your refresh rate to 72 Hz, 80 Hz, or 90 Hz.

    • Render Resolution: Adjusts the resolution that the app or game you're using is being rendered at. The maximum render resolution you can set is 5408 x 2736.

Improved visuals vs performance

Keep in mind, while increasing your refresh rate and render resolution will result in improved visuals, these adjustments could have a negative impact on overall performance. Even with some of the newest and most powerful GPUs, maxing out values for the render resolution slider with a 90 Hz refresh rate may result in dropped or missing frames, which creates a less smooth in-VR experience.

If you're having performance issues while trying to use Quest 2 + Link, please review our troubleshooting article for additional information.
