Is it possible to define a window in MSFS to access the desktop while flying in VR (HP Reverb G2)?

Yes but you have to use SteamVR and with that i use the OVRToolkit app which is excellent, I've but seen another way to do it with just WMR yet (please post anyone of you know how).

I've seen youtube vids of folks doing it in games just using the WMR portal application, but the text is hard to read. I've brought browser windows into msfs as a floating vr window (using the wmr portal), but i was doing minimal mouse clicking around in the window. Other than that I find it perfectly usable

If you want to try it, use windows key + y to get mouse to work in the wmr cliff house, open whatever you want in a window, and then click on the "follow me" icon on the window. It then appears in your headset while in games. Follow me icon in red circle below

I think you can only move the window around in vr using the hand controllers which is a bit of a pain
