-HOW DO I SET UP MY QUEST 2 HEADSET?
Charge your headset
To start, plug the charging cord into your Oculus Quest 2 Headset and a power source to begin charging it. The charging indicator turns green once it's fully charged. If you haven't already charged your Quest 2, we recommend keeping your headset connected to power while it runs the initial updates.
Create your account
If you're new to Oculus, or using Oculus Quest 2, a Facebook account is required to use your device, apps and the Oculus store. You can create a Facebook account by tapping “Sign Up” on the first screen of the device setup process in the Oculus mobile app.
Adjust your headset fit and view To start, you'll want to gently adjust the lenses by shifting them left, then right until they click into the position that allows you to see what's on the screen most clearly. Next, adjust the side straps. To do this, move the two sliders on either side of the top strap. To loosen the side straps, move the sliders toward the top strap. To tighten the side straps, move the sliders away from the top strap. After you move the sliders, re-center the top strap between the sliders so that the two sides are equal, and the top strap is centered on your head when you put the headset on. Keep in mind, you'll need to remove the headset from your head to re-adjust the side straps with the sliders. If you're wearing glasses, make sure to insert the glasses spacer. When you're ready to put the headset on, put it on from front to back. Place the headset on your head, then remove it and make any additional adjustments to the side straps as needed. Once you've got the side straps set, put your headset back on and adjust the top strap. You can adjust the top strap by pulling apart the Velcro and re-attaching it so that your Quest 2 rests lightly on your face and the picture is clear. You can fine tune your headset fit and clarity by gently moving the firm arms on either side of your Quest 2 up and down to adjust the angle of the headset against your face. Once your headset is adjusted, follow the instructions in-VR and in the Oculus mobile app to complete the setup process.

-WHAT'S IPD,AND HOW TO ADJUST IT ?
Two terms that are often used when talking about headset adjustments and clarity are “IPD” and “lens spacing.”
IPD stands for Inter Pupillary Distance, or simply put, the distance between your pupils.
Lens spacing refers to the distance between the clearest spots on the two lenses inside your headset.
To achieve the best image clarity, lens spacing should line up with your IPD as much as possible. Quest headsets best accommodate IPDs between 56 and 70 mm, or about 95% of adults.
Finding your IPD
If you're not sure what your IPD is, the best way to ensure the most accurate measurement is to see your optometrist.
If seeing an optometrist isn't an option, many companies that sell prescription glasses have online or app-based resources to help you get an accurate IPD number at home.
Quest 2 IPD
To change the lens spacing on your Oculus Quest 2, gently adjust the lenses by shifting them together or apart. There are three lens spacing settings for Quest 2.
If you know your IPD, the ratio below shows which lens spacing setting is suggested by oculus
Lens Spacing Setting
61 mm or smaller
61 mm to 66 mm
66mm or larger
1 (narrowest, 58 mm)
2 (middle, 63mm)
3 (widest, 68mm)
Keep in mind that these are only suggestions, particularly if your IPD is on or near the edge of each lens spacing setting’s suggested range. The best setting for you can depend on numerous factors, including things that can change with each use, like where a piece of content has you directing your gaze or how the headset is positioned on your face when you put it on. Don't hesitate to try a different lens spacing setting to see if it improves image clarity for you.
To change the IPD on your Oculus Quest: gently move the slider on the bottom left side of the headset from left, then right
