Windows 11 stutter link cable

Level 3

Just a heads up that there's currently a bug (or issue) with oculus link and windows 11.  
It took me hours to find a solution, but one does exist.  Hopefully if enough people have this problem then it can be patched quickly. 

On windows 11 21H2 stable,  connecting to link introduces horrendous stuttering and missed frames.  
This is amplified even more when launching steam VR to the point of complete un-usability in some games. 

Last night I found a post that fixes the problem in oculus home, and with another step fixes it in steam vr. 

Open ODT, at the top click service, then toggle console visibility, this will restart the oculus software. 
No when you connect to link and are at the oculus dashboard, alt-tab to bring the console to the forefront of your PC.   That's it for oculus home to run smoothly again,  now for steamVR.  
Don't launch Steam VR from the oculus library tab, instead launch your game directly through steam (either on you PC monitor, or using the desktop view in oculus dash) and make sure to click "launch in oculus mode" if the game supports it.  

And that's it, silky smooth playing again. 
Let's hope this is an easy and quick fix 🤞🏻
