comment Adding multiple steam desktop shortcuts
@WizLiz Multiselect was just added, but "Create Desktop Shortcut" is not one of the supported actions for a multi-select. Is having this many desktop shortcuts really that popular?

comment Are all weapons in Team Fortress 2 unlockable?
You could get any item, but possibly not every item given the backpack space available to non-premium accounts. So technically you might have to buy one item to have space for the rest.

comment Can you disable DLC for a campaign?
It's better to disable in-game if the game offers that feature. Disabling it in Steam can force you to re-download the content when you turn it back on.

comment Force “controller support” so game shows up in Big Picture
It would be helpful if you listed the specific games and whether they have full or partial controller support. If that's not appropriate here, try: steamcommunity.com/groups/steamuniverse/discussions/0

comment How to disable play time tracking?
You could play CS 1.6, Source, and Condition Zero. You'd get around the terms of the bet while still playing CS and you'd be a CS hipster.

comment Can I download to my laptop while playing on my pc?
@TZHX: You can now log in to Steam on multiple computers, so you should update your answer.

comment First Time Setup runs every time I click Play
@Louis: Running first time setup should create that node. If you create it by hand (my DOTA2 install just has "directx" = 1) it will prevent the script from running.

comment Change icons in Big Picture Mode
@PrinnyBrocka: You're right, it's not working in Apr 2, was working on my (out of date) late Mar build. It will probably be back in the next update, but that won't be for at least a week and a half.

comment Change icons in Big Picture Mode
@PrinnyBrocka: Try checking for client updates, or restarting so it happens automatically. It will be in a very recent client update. If that doesn't help, try changing the icon (even back to the same thing) from the desktop UI (right click properties on the shortcut). Let me know if it works.

comment Get steam to realize I have games already installed
I think in this case he'd want `D:\Games` as the folder. It should find the games without having to restart.

I've done it myself and lots of other people have too (you can read about it on the associated Steam group).

comment No hit sounds in Team Fortress 2
Back in the day I had this happen to me and it could be fixed by starting/stopping a recording.
