I just bought some software from Steam, but when I click on my games list, I don't see it.

Where do I find Steam Software that doesn't appear in my games list?

Steam software is listed under the "All Software" category in the Steam client, not the "All Games" category.

To view it, use the dropdown menu located just to the right of the search box, and select "All Software"

Steam Client Large Mode

Steam Client Small Mode

I've had occasions where purchased software doesn't immediately show up. Shutting down steam and restarting should resolve the problem.
