It’s pretty easy to transfer Oculus Quest 2 screenshots to your Mac or Windows PC. We’ll show you how to do it, but first, let’s highlight everything you need for a successful transfer.
Your VR headset saves all the screenshots that you take on your Quest 2 as 1024×1024 JPEG image files. You can copy these files just like you copy files from your Android phone. However, you need to ensure that the USB-C cable you plan to use matches your PC or Mac’s port. Besides, Mac owners will need the free File Transfer Utility.
Once you have everything set, start your Oculus Quest 2 and log in to your Mac or PC. Connect your computer and the Quest headset through the USB-C port on the side and then put on the headset.
A message will appear on your Quest screen requesting you “Allow Access to Data.”
Remove your headset and proceed with the instructions below.
