Connect an Oculus Quest 2 to a PC: Using Oculus Link

If you’d prefer to use a wired connection, follow the steps below to connect your Oculus Quest 2 to a PC via Oculus Link. This method should work for both Oculus Quest and Quest 2 headsets. You can use the official Oculus Link cable, or a high-quality USB-C 3.0 cable. Do check individual reviews of third-party cables, though, as not all of them are rated for VR performance.

Step 1: Review the compatibility requirements to make sure that your PC and headset meet all of the hardware and software requirements.

Step 2: Go to the Oculus app on your computer and power on your headset.

Step 3: You’ll need to plug in one end of the USB or Oculus Link cable into your PC’s USB 3.0 port. The other end should then be plugged into your headset.

Step 4: In virtual reality, you’ll see an “Allow Access to Data” prompt. Be sure to select* Deny*.

Step 5: When you see the Enable Oculus Link prompt, choose Enable.

Step 2: Put on your headset and then press the Oculus button on the right Touch controller to bring up the universal menu.

Step 3: Open the Quick Settings panel and select the Settings cog.

Step 4: Select Quest Link from the left-hand menu.

Step 5: Select Launch Quest Link. If necessary, toggle it to On, first.

Step 6: Toggle Use Air Link to On.

Step 7: Select your PC from the list of “Available PCs” and select Pair.

Step 8: A pairing code will be shown in your headset. Take off your headset and confirm that the code is the same on your computer screen. Then select Confirm on the desktop app.

Step 9: Next time you want to launch your Quest 2 using Airlink, you can simply launch it from the Quick Settings menu in the future.
