Steam beta client adds ‘hide this game in my library’ option

Posted on August 8, 2014 AT 05:20am

Steam has the added the option to hide games from appearing in your library with a new Steam client beta update that allows players to trim down their bloated list of games.

“Add “Hide this game in my library” functionality, accessible from the Set Categories menu,” the patch notes read. “Games that are hidden will not show up in library filters except for a new filter called “Hidden”, which will only appear once at least one game is marked as hidden. Hidden games are still available for play and will still appear on the user’s profile.”

As well as this, the new beta updates the “desktop user interface styles, simplifying common controls and navigation elements, and neutralizing overall color palette to align with Steam web pages and Big Picture mode.”
