We have assembled a list of pc gaming tips that will help you get the most out of your gaming experience this holiday season and beyond. It’s an ever-growing list that will be expanded in the near future.
1. Manage Your Game Library
By default, Steam displays your games in alphabetical order in a single, vertically aligned list. That gets the job done if you don’t own many games, but if you own close to 100, as I do, you may long for better organization.
Fortunately, Valve provides the tools to tidy up your library. By right-clicking a game’s name and navigating to Set Categories, you can create categories (say, Fighting Games or RPGs) to organize your digital collection. To add a game to a created category, navigate the same menu path and check off the applicable category at the end.
2. Continue Playing Anywhere With Steam Cloud
Did you know that you can save your game progress to the cloud and resume your play session on another PC without missing a beat? By enabling Steam Cloud – Settings > Cloud > Enable Steam Could Synchronization, your game saves are stored on Valve’s servers, which lets you continue where you left off.
3. Share your Library with Friends
Just because your PC game library is digital, that doesn’t mean you can’t lend games to others in your household. Family Library Sharing lets you lend your games to up to 10 other friends who use the same gaming PC. Enable it by visiting Settings > Family, and then clicking the Authorize Library Sharing On This Computer box.
