How do I verify an apex file?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To verify an Apex file on Steam, follow these steps:

1. Restart your computer: This is always a good first step to ensure a fresh start and clear any temporary issues that may be causing problems.

2. Launch Steam: Open the Steam application on your computer. If you haven’t already logged in, enter your credentials to sign in to your Steam account.

3. Locate the game in your Library: Once you are logged in to Steam, navigate to your Library by clicking on the “Library” tab at the top of the Steam window. Scroll through your list of games to find the Apex file you want to verify.

4. Right-click the game or access the game’s properties: Once you have located the Apex file, you have two options to access its properties. You can either right-click on the game’s name and select “Properties” from the drop-down menu that appears, or you can click on the gear icon located on the far right side of the game’s Library page and select “Properties” from the drop-down menu.

5. Access the Local Files tab: In the properties window that appears, you will see several tabs at the top. Click on the “Local Files” tab to access the options related to the game’s local files.

6. Verify the game’s files: On the Local Files tab, you will find a button labeled “Verify Integrity of Game Files” or something similar. Click on this button to initiate the verification process.

7. Wait for the verification process to complete: Steam will now begin verifying the game’s files. This process may take several minutes, depending on the size of the game and the speed of your computer. During this time, Steam will compare the files on your computer with the files it has on record for the game. If any discrepancies are found, Steam will automatically replace or repair the affected files.

8. Review the verification results: Once the verification process is complete, Steam will display a message indicating whether any issues were found and if any files needed to be repaired or replaced. If everything is fine, you will see a message stating that the verification was successful.

9. Launch the game: After the verification is complete and any necessary repairs have been made, you can close the properties window and proceed to launch the Apex file. It should now be in a verified and stable state.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your Apex file on Steam is verified and any potential issues with its files are resolved.
