I have enough games in my Steam library that I prefer to organize them into seven or eight categories. This is especially handy for things like those bundled Mac versions of Civ (no Macs in the house) since I can just mark them with a "Not for me" category name and hide them from the big list.
Unfortunately, Steam will sometimes forget all about those categories, leaving you back at the alphabetized list: no Favorites, no nothing. It's very annoying and I really don't want to have to reset all the category names. What I'd really like to be able to do is get the configuration file from the desktop machine and copy it to the laptop which has just forgotten all of its categories.
So, where are those configurations stored? Will Steam pick the categories up if I give it the correct configuration file(s)?
