Problems select games

I have the HTC Vive and it's connected to my gaming PC. I play games pretty regularly but i have to select the game on the on the PC first. Was wondering if there is a way to select the game within the VR from the list of games i have? Is there an application for this i can buy or get ;or a feature i might have turned off? Any help is appreciated.

Re: Problems select games

Are you having these issues launching only Viveport titles or does it also affect Steam titles?

It is also affecting steam titles.

Just to understand: Your issue is that you want to launch games without taking the headset off?

I have found many times, that you can't launch games in the headset menus until they have been loaded atleast once from the PC.

Really? After loading the game at least once it should work?

Yeah thats how it is for me on anything from Viveport, infact I think I have even had steam games that don't show on the steam library until I have launched them from the PC interface first.
