Project reality updating shortcuts

25 Sep

Unlike the Hololens emulator that runs apps in a virtual machine, mixed reality apps run just like any other app; the simulator makes them think you actually have a headset, and your movements are controlled with your normal peripherals instead of having your body tracked in real time. Here's how to set up and use the Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) simulator in Windows 10 Creators Update.

In order to actually be able to access the WMR simulator, you have to first tweak some settings.

After enabling developer mode, WMR simulator will become available. Keep in mind that you'll have to uninstall any other mixed reality apps separately.

While we're still waiting for consumer-grade mixed reality headsets from the likes of Acer, Dell, Lenovo, and HP, this is a nice taste of mixed reality.

The need for URL shortcuts arises from the fact that users may access resources or content online.

This routine creates the COM object which leads to the declaration of a variable which has the desktop path contained in it which allows the construction of the desktop shortcut.
