WMR, SteamVR and preview window

May 17, 2016

My Lenovo explorer VR headset arrived yesterday. So i'm still trying to figure things out. I have a few questions.

1. Can i use this without having to launch windows mixed reality app? So directly with steamVR?
2. I see that i can pause the windows MR preview window on my desktop. However, when i launch a Steam VR game, there is also a small preview window on desktop. I really don't need that. It's not performance free ofc. That preview window is going to take up some CPU and GPU to render. And it is useless to me because i am looking at that VR game in my headset anyways. So is there any way to disable or pause that preview window?
