Big Steam update makes managing your PC game downloads a breeze

It’s needless to say that Steam is the most popular gaming PC storefront on the market. Yet, while gaming fans and PC enthusiasts alike love the app, it does have some storage management quirks. Thankfully, Valve has just launched a new patch that completely overhauls the look and feel of the app’s storage and downloads page.

Valve’s latest update doesn’t look like much to the untrained eye, but it actually makes viewing and managing Steam storage much less of a chore. Prior to the upgrade, the downloads page was relatively barebones and left a lot to be desired. Now, you can manage your Steam library across multiple SSDs and hard drives while viewing a breakdown of installed games and content.

Steam’s swish new storage page isn’t the only shining star in this update. Valve has also enhanced its downloads page and addressed some of its most glaring issues. This includes displaying installation progress and an ability to reorder download queues by simply dragging and dropping. The download tab’s clean new aesthetic also comes with a change to the ‘view news’ button, which is now more fittingly known as ‘patch notes’.
