How do I add apps to Steam?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To add apps to Steam, follow these steps:

1. Launch Steam: Open the Steam application on your computer. If you don’t have Steam installed, you can download it from the official website and create an account.

2. Games Menu: Once Steam is open, click on the “Games” menu located at the top left corner of the Steam window. A drop-down menu will appear.

3. Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library: From the Games menu, select “Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library.” This option allows you to add games or applications that are not directly available on Steam.

4. Browse or Select: In the “Add a Game” window that appears, you have two options. You can either browse for games on your computer by clicking the “Browse” button or select games from a pre-populated list by putting a checkmark next to the game(s) you wish to add.

5. Add Selected Programs: After selecting the game(s) you want to add, click on the “Add Selected Programs” button at the bottom right corner of the window.

6. Game Added: The game(s) you selected will now be added to your Steam library. You can access them by clicking on the “Library” tab located at the top of the Steam window.

Adding apps to Steam is a convenient feature as it allows you to have all your games and applications in one place. By adding non-Steam games to your library, you can launch them directly through Steam, enabling features such as in-game overlay, Steam community integration, and more.

Personally, I find this feature useful for organizing all my games and applications in one central location. It helps me keep track of my collection and easily access them without having to search through various folders on my computer.

Furthermore, adding apps to Steam can be beneficial if you prefer using Steam’s features, such as Steam achievements, game time tracking, or the Steam controller configuration. It also makes it easier to share your gaming experiences with friends through Steam’s social features, such as screenshots, game reviews, and in-game chat.

Adding apps to Steam is a straightforward process that allows you to consolidate your games and applications into one convenient library. It provides access to Steam features and enhances your overall gaming experience.
