Setting up the reset bindings

The SlimeVR Server has the following default key bindings:

  • CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+U for Quick reset.
  • CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+Y for Reset.

These keybindings can be configured by editing the following line of the vrconfig.yml file:

keybindings: {reset: CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+Y, quickReset: CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+U}

If you want to be able to bind these to your controller, you will need an additional application such as OVR Advanced Settings.

OVR Advanced Settings bindings

Make sure OVR Advanced Settings is closed before following these steps or you will encounter problems.

  1. In the Windows Explorer window, enter %appdata%\AdvancedSettings-Team\OVR Advanced Settings.ini in Address bar and press Enter. Notepad with the OVR Advanced Settings.ini file contents should open.
  2. Find the keyboardOne and keyboardTwo lines and replace them with the following lines:

    keyboardOne=^*>y ; CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+Y - Reset
    keyboardTwo=^*>u ; CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+U - Quick reset

    Note: If you changed default SlimeVR Server key bindings, refer to Keyboard Input Guide.

  3. In SteamVR Dashboard, open OVR Advanced Settings and select Bindings. If you don’t see the icon for OVR Advanced Settings on your dashboard, try running OVR Advanced Settings from your Steam library and check if the icon appeared on your dashboard.
  4. In the opened window, select the Misc tab.
  5. Double-click the plus sign near the desired button name to add a binding.
  6. In the opened dialog window, select BUTTON.
  7. Click None near the desired button action. To see more button actions, click Show more.
  8. In the opened Boolean Actions window, select Keyboard Shortcut One.
  9. Repeat previous two steps for Keyboard Shortcut Two.


  • If you reset your playspace (for example long pressing Oculus button on Quest), you will need to do a tracker reset.
  • OpenVR Advanced Settings’ keybinds may not work well in certain languages. If this is the case for you, start SteamVR with your system’s language set to English.
  • SlimeVR Server uses Java 11.
  • If you need the SlimeVR Steam driver you can find it here.
