How to navigate the HTC Vive XR Elite without controllers using Hand Tracking

Make sure that Hand tracking is activated. A guide on how to activate Hand Tracking can be found here.

Selecting a button or icon: Reach out your hand so that it is captured by the tracking cameras. Your hand will be displayed transparent white through the Headset. With the palm of your hand facing outwards, point your index finger at the button or icon you want to select. To select it, touch your thumb with your index finger.

Scrolling: With the palm of your hand facing outwards, touch your index finger with your thumb. To scroll down move your hand down and to scroll up move your hand up. Make sure fingers are still touching while scrolling.

Accessing the Vive Menu: Touch your index finger with your thumb. Align the fingers so that the fingertips point upwards. The Vive symbol appears with a circle around it that slowly closes. Hold this position until the circle is completely closed.

By following these steps, you should be able to navigate the HTC Vive XR Elite without controllers using Hand Tracking.
