I am playing Skyrim on PC with a XBox 360 wired controller. Every time I click left stick to sneak it works, but also brings up the Steam Community page/menu. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I try disabling the community page or re-mapping it to another key command but then it treats it like an ALT+TAB quick escape. I just want to play the game seamlessly with an XBox 360 controller; any ideas or solutions are greatly appreciated!

I fired up Skyrim today for the first time with my 360 wired controller, and didn't have any trouble clicking the left stick - Have you manually customized anything related to the left stick prior to having the problem? I'm using all default controls (and installed the driver for the controller from Microsoft's website) – xyroclast Aug 4 '12 at 5:06
Sounds like you're running some kind of gamepad/keyboard emulator or something similar? By default, the Steam UI shouldn't react to any game controller (only the keyboard hotkey defined in Steam's settings). – Mario Nov 12 '12 at 12:33

You can change the shortcut or disable it. Just open Steam, click on Steam at the toolbar, go to Settings and there you'll see the In-Game tab where you can change it. That should do it :)
