Steam Update

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What I like the most about the new steam update is that it now allows you to pick where you want to install your game/program.

No more messing with Steam mover application, just pick and select where to install.

Another feature I find interesting is the Big Picture thing. Its like turning your PC into a console, neat idea.

I have to thank the folks at Valve for finally letting me pick where to install my games. It has been a constant headache for me. I have a 128gb boot drive that I run some games off of, but i have many more i don't play all the time. So finally i can just pick and install. No more you need 20 some gb of free space to install this game. (meaning i have to delete things off my SSD just to download the blasted game) Maddening i tell you.

Multiple drive owners will be pleased like i am.

Technically it is news because it's already been allowed to be posted Twice. Once by me and once by someone else.
