And if you already have a Sidequest account, you can skip creating an account.
STEP 2: Connect Your Oculus Quest To The PC
Now, Connect your Oculus Quest 1 or 2 to your PC using a USB cable. After connecting, put on your Headset and two pop-ups will appear on your Quest.
“Enable Oculus Link”, Click > Not Now
- Directly Afterwards, another prompt will pop up asking, If you want to Allow access your Data, Click > Allow
Allowing that prompt will connect your oculus quest 1 & 2 to the Sidequest and you can see the “GREEN LIGHT” at the top left corner of your Sidequest application.
STEP 3: Enabling Sidequest Wireless Mode
Take the Headset off and on the PC sidequest application, Click > Enable Wireless at the Top Right which symbolizes a WIFI signal. Now Click > Connect when the pop up appears
STEP 4: Navigate To Sidequestvr.com And Log In
Now, navigate to https://sidequestvr.com/#/login on your Oculus Quest using the internet browser.
And now sign into your same Sidequest account that you’ve created earlier or if you already had an account, just Sign-in to the sidequest website.
STEP 5: Voila! Unplug The Headset And Use Sidequest Wirelessly!
If you’ve done all the steps correctly then Sidequest will show “Purple Light” instead of Red or Green.
This means that you’ve connected two android devices to Sidequest because your PC is connected to the same Oculus Quest Twice: Using USB and Wirelessly through WiFi
And to solve this little problem, just unplug the USB cable from your Quest and you can see that the Purple Light turned back to Green.
And Voila! Now you can install any Sidequest Games and Apps Wirelessly!

Trying to transfer files for Lambda1VR. I need to copy a folder, but sidequest can’t select a folder. I transferred everything IN the folder, but couldn’t start a game. It says “Copy the whole folder, not just the contents!”
So how do I copy a folder?
Also, when I click “Open current save location” it opens a folder on my hard drive. Is there a “go” button or something that will push all the files to my quest?
Restart Quest. Make sure you waited long enough for sidequest to complete the install process before disconnecting. Also, make sure you can install other sidequest apps without issues. Can you reply after trying all the methods? If these steps don’t solve your issue, please reply to this comment.
