Microsoft is still polishing the April 201

9 update of Windows 10, also known as 19H1. In the latest development release, you can now launch desktop applications (Win32) in the virtual environment of a mixed reality headset.

This feature is part of the Insider Preview Build 18329 that Microsoft announced on February 1, 2019. If you have a Windows device Mixed Reality Headset: You can now start classic Windows desktop applications in the Mixed Reality environment. They are displayed as panes in the 3D view, as is already the case today with UWP apps (Universal Windows Platform) from the store.

How Microsoft works:

To use this feature, go to the Pins panel [in Mixed Reality] then go to all apps where you will find a folder called "Classic Apps (Beta)". In this folder you can select and start any desktop applications (Win32).

Today's virtual reality headsets have relatively low resolution screens, and you can see the pixels up close – that's the "screen door effect". However, a future extremely high-resolution headset could offer a great workspace. Windows Mixed Reality is now ready for this future.
