My shadow is stuck on 'Choose your Keyboard layout'
Hello.I have exactly the same problem who had @mtthieuHello!I’ve just started up my shadow and it had an update. The thing is, I am expected to ‘Choose a keyboard layout’ in Windows 10, however, I cannot access the window as it is only the preview window that is shown. I can’t reboot it either. Any ideas? I did wait 30mn and it doesnt fix the issue :/

Can i use a 3 screen setup with the Nreal air AR glasses?
So I have a shadow PC, that I mainly use to play games at the moment, but plan on getting into coding and games dev. I also plan on getting the nreal air AR glasses, which are glasses that can connect to a smart phone, and display a 201 inch screen or a number of smaller screens. These glasses are able to display a virtual 3 screen set up, as a beta on windows. But as the shadow PC is not actually natively running on the host device. I'm not sure how it would work, or if it even would work. Can anyone please advise on if this is something you have tested, and if it doesn't work is this something that is coming in the future? Because honestly I think a shadow PC and nreal air glasses is the ultimate combo.
When I log into the Shadow launcher, it takes me to a PC windows login screen, with a prompt for a password. When I put in my Shadow Passowrd, however, it says it is incorrect. I tried resetting my password and restarting the launcher and the new password didn’t work again. I hadn’t logged onto shadow in a couple weeks, usually the launcher takes me directly to the desktop screen without having to put my password in.
A problem with Roblox
Hi !I have a question for Shadow users.Is the Roblox app still working on your end?Because for me, no.Whenever I want to launch the application, the application crashes showing me an error message.I have already contacted Roblox technical support but the solutions given did not work.The last emails that Roblox sent me informed me that Roblox had updated its application to strengthen the security of the app.So Roblox asked me to disable any VPN or Proxy that I enabled.The problem is that I haven't enabled either of those two things.But I remembered that I had a similar problem with Genshin Impact, which told me that I had activated a VPN.Here is my question:Do you also have problems with Roblox?If yes, please let me knowIf not, can someone help me with this problem? (If possible, someone speaking French would be ideal to communicate better)Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any response! ^^
Allow 3rd Party Streamer Parsec without having Shadow Streamer running
For me, Parsec can handle much better big FPS fluctuation. Even with Power Upgrade on 1080p you can have always solid 60 FPS all the time. Currently shadow will disconnect you, when you are not connected via the App. As far as i know, for Shadow VR there is a Exception. You can use Virtual Desktop without the Shadow Streamer. It would be really nice to have official Parsec support.I made two videos about how parsec is running on Shadow PC with W11.

ShadowPC - How to save lower resolutions?
Every time I boot into the ShadowPC instance, the Windows environment and stream has a resolution of 3840x2160. In reality, I'm using a 2560x1440 resolution, but to be honest, I think it is actually 3840x2160 and macOS is just scaling to the resolution. But sending a 4k resolution over the stream can have small stutters, which is why I always set the resolution back to 2560x1440 via the Shadow Control Panel.The problem, after restarting the ShadowPC instance (next session), the resolution of the system and control panel is set back to 3840x2160.Currently, I'm helping myself with a terminal script to switch the resolution faster via a shortcut:Source: https://tools.taubenkorb.at/change-screen-resolution/Command: ChangeScreenResolution.exe /w=2560 /h=1440 /d=0However, it is easy to forget this and autostart isn't always a good resolution, so I get a bit annoyed when I have to quit games completely because I have to change the resolution back to a lower one again.So, my question is: "How
Warhammer 3 Total war Loading Issue
After installing the game from Steam everything is alright. But after a certain period of time, about several hours, the game starts to load a very long time. Only after reinstalling the game did the issue disappear. I check Task Manager, and sometimes when this issue occurs, when the game is loading I see a High pick of network loading. The problem is even worse because downloading games from Steam is super slow. This problem makes Total war warhammer 3 unplayable on Shadow(

My client on a chromebook doesn't recognize the extra side buttons on a mouse. More precisely, it recognizes them only as left and right buttons. The Chromebook itself recognizes these buttons correctly as mb3 and mb4, but not Shadow. And without it, I can't play normally.

What Games Do We Officially Support?
First, let’s make things right. Shadow is not a library of games. And that’s a good thing. Because it’s much much more! Why? Just because. But also: 👉 On Shadow, you can play any game from Steam, EpicStore, etc. pretty much any game launcher you like! 👉 You’re more of an Indie game player? We’ve got you covered: you can download your favorite games on Shadow! 👉 And of course, do much more than gaming. But if you’re here, we bet you already knew that! So yes, Shadow can support pretty much any game under specific conditions: as long as Shadow meets the hardware requirements for a specific game and the developer allows virtualization, we’re all set! That being said, you wanted us to publish a list of games that we tried on Shadow. Unfortunately, we don’t have someone (yet?) to try ALL the games that exist on Shadow (if we do, please help me get that job). In the meantime, here is a list of popular games among Shadow users: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare L
How to leave Android TV beta
How do I opt out of the Android TV beta please?There used to be an information page with the option to leave via the Beta Android TV link on the downloads page, but this beta link now leads to the Google play store - with no option to leave the beta program. It appears to be the same page as the normal Android TV app link.
Launcher not updating and stream stuck on windows update

Any way to solve this? I have already uninstalled the Shadow Launcher and reinstalled incase there as a verification problem but that doesn’t work too. This problem has been going on for 4 days now.
Heavy rain game
I have been trying to play a game called "Heavy rain", and in it you do various movements with the controller. One of them involves pushing the right stick to one side, left or right, it does not matter, and then do a circular motion with it for 90 or 45 degrees. It happens that for some reason 90% of the time, the shadow pc fails to register the movement. Controller seems to work ok when going to the testing gamepad website. Installing the game on my steam deck everything works as it should. I wonder if there are any known incompatibilities between this game and shadow. It is the sort of game I would rather play on the big srceen TV.Does anybody have the same problem? I know it is an old game, but still, quite good I find.Lately I have been having quite a lot of latency issues. I have tried the App on my MAC, on google chromecast TV and with windows. both Windows and chromecast are using wired connection. I must say that form all the 3, chromecast is the best in terms of latency. I wo
