I was unable to find a link to remove a game from the list (in the web interface at least)


You want to go to view your wishlist: (yours is here)

(not my wishlist)

While viewing your wishlist, you will notice the "Added on" line below the title. At the end of this line, there is a remove link. Use this remove link to remove an item from your wishlist.

Do note that you need to be logged in to be able to remove iitems from your wishlist.

    I can't believe I missed that! -- Is it me or it can use a re-design? (I was looking in the "Links" drop down, in the right, at the top, but did not see it there) – juan Dec 7 '10 at 14:14
  • I think it's okayish, but I see your point. I think the dropdown was added very recently, this really changed the situation but the 'Remove' link wasn't reconsidered. – Cort Dec 7 '10 at 14:58

    I don't have that link.. have they changed the design or is my account bunged? – Damon Nov 23 '13 at 4:58

    For those in mobile web/app, the link may not be viewable because the layout stacked against each other. Solution: view the web/app in landscape mode. – aff Dec 28 '17 at 5:58

You can do this from your Steam Community Profile page. Go to the Games section, then click on the Wishlist tab. From there you should see a remove link for each game.


In the source by press F12 In Chrome, look for this var g_rgWishlistData = in there you can find the appid.

Go your wishlist page, press F12, go to Console, and insert this:

$J.post( g_strWishlistBaseURL + 'remove/', {
                'appid' : 0,
                'sessionid' : g_sessionID

Replace the appid with the id from the list, and press enter.

For example, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim(Old one, hidden by Steam)'s appid is 72850. (as i said, In the source by press F12 In Chrome, look for this var g_rgWishlistData = in there you can find the appid.)
Go to your wishlist page, F12, Sources, and type the following text and Enter.

$J.post( g_strWishlistBaseURL + 'remove/', {
                'appid' : 72850,
                'sessionid' : g_sessionID

and it will removed from your wishing list.

    This is good to know and shows a lot of effort, but it might be a little too technical for the crowd on this site. – JonathanDavidArndt Apr 4 '19 at 2:59
  • This is a good answer though pretty technical, it might be useful for people looking to do a bit more manipulation of their wishlist. I have cleaned up your formatting a bit so it is a bit more readable. – Malco Apr 4 '19 at 14:27
  • @JonathanDavidArndt Apparently there's a bug where wishlist items only disappear from view but still remain in the database, causing the counter in the list to be incorrect; see this topic. Games on the list that are removed from Steam likewise get stuck in limbo and can never truly be removed. This solves that. The IDs on the wishlist can be fetched from here. – Nyerguds Sep 12 '19 at 18:03
