Is there a command line to launch Interface directly in HMD?

Is there a command line to launch Interface directly in HMD?

I would like to be able to jump to HF directly from Oculus home, without have to deal with the desktop mode…

Im probably wrong but had the idea the version on steam did this

Here is what I do on Linux:

# to launch in HMD mode (DK2):
$ ./interface '--display=Oculus Rift'
# to launch in 3D SBS mode:
$ ./interface '--display=3D TV - Side by Side Stereo'
# to launch in Desktop mode:
$ ./interface '--display=Desktop'

On Windows, you might be able to do something similar (untested):

C:\Program Files\High Fidelity\Interface>interface.exe --display "Oculus Rift"
C:\Program Files\High Fidelity\Interface>interface.exe --display "OpenVR (Vive)"
C:\Program Files\High Fidelity\Interface>interface.exe --display "Desktop"

Note that the display names are case sensitive and need to exactly match one of the options shown in the main app’s Display menu.

If it doesn’t seem to work, make sure the app is interpreting the argument properly by looking for a line like this in the main hifi-log.txt debug output:

Setting prefered display plugins: ("3D TV - Side by Side Stereo")

Thank you very much… I’ve just tried it… and it works fine.
Now I can call HF from Oculus Home and get there directly in VR.
