Unless your 120 SSD is really better than your 240 one (if the 120 has a SATA version higher than the 240 for example and your motherboard support it), you won't notice a difference if there's any. It might be a little bit faster under some circumstances. The main advantage of having a different SSD for your games will be that it won't be accessed when your ...

When you activate a game on Steam that you already share, then you keep it. It won't be a shared game anymore since it's now in your own library as a game that you bought for yourself, so you no longer need to worry about the game being shared by your friend. However, as Sergii Zaskaleta has pointed out, if there any DLCs that your friend may have on the ...

No. Only an extremely poorly-written program will provide a way to view its own stored password, as this is a major security risk. If you could view your saved password, then it could also be accessed by a remote user over the network. Since your password is currently saved in Steam, the best course of action is to first verify that the email address ...

Unfortunately not. Although you can add a shortcut to the game on Steam, that still doesn't do much and it's still a non-Steam game. However, chances are that you may have received a redeemable Steam code with your order, or that you may have one accessible somewhere with your purchase.

If you have not yet upgraded to Premium on TF2, then all the items you get are untradeable. Chances are, the mobile thing isn't a bug. If you want to upgrade to Premium, all you need to do is purchase an item on the Mann Co Store.

This best way to enable it from steam is to create a .desktop shortcut to run the jar package. This will also allow you to provide name, description and icon to steam, as well as providing the full command line, including attributes.

There is more than a storefront on on GoG (contra DJ Aftershock's response), but the community is lesser than at Steam. Each game (or game series) has a dedicated forum, some are more active than others. Sometimes for classic games the gog forum is the best one available, though. Plus, gog never tried to rm -rf / any of it's users Linux boxen. ;) For ...

Since you're already on SSD, adding another as an extra drive will not improve performance much (if at all). The difference would be negligible unless you had a really bad drive or one that already has bad sectors. Any SSD would be faster than a traditional hard drive. With that said, you should still consider using it as a game drive instead of using your ...

It seems like you can do it by copying the whole Steam repository from another computer where steam is fully installed as @aytimothy said and as it is explained here : http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/828934913076877521/ If you copy it from a friend or so, copy everything except the SteamApps repository because it contains the games. But steam ...

There currently is no way to remove licenses granted through Family Sharing. Well, the loaner can revoke your licenses (access), but you can't remove them from the receiving end of them... However, since you're looking to buy the game, you could always go to the store page and purchase it from there. As for making the buy button appear, you have one of ...

If the two drives are on different datapaths, you will notice a substantial improvement. Most motherboards have all drives on the same datapath though (some high end ones have two separate datapaths). If you are looking for an improvement with only a single datapath, you have to find what the maximum thouroughput and average thouroughput of the path is, and ...

By default it should be C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\bin\win64 4) To force 64 bits client instead of 32 : ...

Steam support finally got back to me and disabled the authenticator. I found that leaving a message that doesn't receive an automated reply prompts an actual representitive to read your ticket

The item server is probably down. This means TF2 is under maintenance. You're best just to wait an hour or two.

This is kind of subjective, but I'll throw what I know about the two into a makeshift answer: Steam Steam Sales are great, letting you get some new and hot games for a really cheap price Notably large amount of games, although... There's a LOT of garbage on Steam, you should probably check out THIS series of videos which are mostly on games sold on Steam ...

Well, they're different platforms run by different companies. Valve has been taking more of a hands-off approach with Steam, their goal seemingly to make it a popular distribution and community platform. GoG on the other hand specifically targets older games (although they've broadened their scope now, GoG stands for "Good old Games") which they modify to ...

Assuming your brother is still living in the same house, you can easily transport them directly over your local area network. I don't know what version of Windows (or other OS) you're using, but it should be pretty doable with a Google search of "(your OS name here) local network file transfer." This utilizes the local connection between the computers in ...

You can do that by going to Settings -> Display and adjust Safezone value to fit your needs.

Steam autostarts by default on Windows, unchecking the option under settings will remedy the issue. However, autostarting Steam shouldn't pose any significant security threat. It has held up to a very large amount of attempts to exploit it so far and automatic updates combined with their security team makes sure it stays that way.
