Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How to re-activate the quick snap function?

edited October 2018 in Questions And Answers

Hello everybody.

I have a little issue with the "snap a quick pic" function.

When I start my unityApp I can't use the quick snap function anymore (pressing "Volume Up" & "Volume Down" Buttons).

Seemingly because Vuforia occupies the camera. After deactivating Vufioria the function still keeps disabled. Even closing the App won't bring it back. Only when I completely shut down and restart the Hololens the function works again.

I need Vuforia to be running in the beginning to locate some trackers. Any sugesstions how I can still use the Button Combination to take some Screenshots inside my app?



  • ok this seems to work:
