VR can you use the mouse pointer?

Oculus Rift S, Can you change the settings to just use a mouse pointer to select and changes cockpit settings, like in the 2D or VC non-VR, and not the white ball that's tied to your field of view? Thanks

I don't understand this VR cursor thingy at all. I use an Acer WMR headset. After switching to VR I get the "dot" cursor. I can move this either (i) using the mouse, or (ii) chaning gaze direction. This is irritating. Besides, the "dot" cursor is pretty big and ugly. Sometimes the mouse function is lost and there only remains the gaze movement rendering it virtually unusable for operating controls.

"Enable Eye Tracking" as well as "Enable Gaze Selection" according to the Help Center are both off.

As the OP, I don't want to use controllers, just the mouse.

Is there something wrong from my side ?

Kind regards, Michael

I too suffer the identical experience. I see the clunky white dot. I use the mouse to change the flight controls in VR. But I sometimes have to click ten times on a control before it has any effect. Trying to set a specific altitude or air speed is almost impossible. I think the programmers here have simply given up trying. They don't care anymore and it shows.
