Press the F5 function key and you can then don the HMD (headset) and you will be in a 3D space. Pick up the controllers in both hands.

The left-hand controller is the one with a sideways wrist menu containing 5 items.

Use the left-hand controller trackpad to move forward, back or left/right. You fly where you are looking.

Selecting stuff

The right-hand controller ray selects stuff or triggers actions like the buttons on the wrist menu. Use the trigger to select an item. PLAY is the normal, default mode. The other modes enable you to make changes.
