Unhide Oculus Home window, enable keyboard and mouse input.
; Home Unhider
; Author: NeoZeroo
; Instructions:
; Just run it after Oculus Home is running, and it will show up.
; This doesn't keep running, it just unhides Home and exits instantly.
; You can maximize the window of even resize it at will.
; Don't try pressing Alt + Enter to make it fullscreen, as that
; will just make it invisible again.
; If you manually close this window, and not the desktop store window,
; it'll just reopen again hidden (DK2 users beware, don't forget it
; running forever, make sure to close the desktop window).
; Keyboard and mouse controls were already implemented on Oculus Home,
; it just did not have focus to receive any input from them.
; We're only unhiding the window.
; Left Click or Spacebar = A button (OK)
; Right Click or Esc = B button (Cancel)
; Arrows = D-Pad
; There's no keyboard key for the Xbox Guide button function.
; When opening a game, Home will gracefully pause and wait in the
; background as the new game window will be on top, and then unpause
; when the game exits.
; When pressing the Xbox Guide button, the Home window will take the
; front while showing the menu, and then will get to the back again
; as you dismiss the menu.
; Mouse and keyboard control still work in the menu.
