link cabel issues

Level 2

I am having a problem with my oculus link cabel. The link cabel works like normal, but when you plug the cabel to your pc it asks "Access Rift apps while your Quest is plugged into your PC. You can enable/disable this from settings at any time" for the oculus link cabel to work you need to enable that request. The problem is that I pressed "Don't show this again" And I can not seem to find any settings wich I can enable that.

Hey there! Thanks for sharing your recent Oculus Link experience, we'd love to help get you back to the Link prompt that's missing. So we can get back to this spot we would need to uninstall and reinstall the Oculus Home app on your desktop. After uninstalling the app from your PC try the following to reinstall.


  • Go to
  • Below Oculus Rift S or Rift, click Download Software.
  • Open the Oculus app and click Install Now.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to create an account and set up your Rift S or Rift.

Please let us know if these steps were of any help, or if you need additional assistance and we'll be happy to help out further!

I'm not entirely sure where the OculusSupport bot is trying to take you, but the fix for your issue is tho access the Developer menu under Settings on the headset (you may need to enable developer mode on the phone app first) and enable the USB prompt option.
