Anyone have any ideas on how best to automatically and en-mass delete all my non-steam game links from my games menu?

1Since you can't seem to multi-select entries in the games window, I'm guessing no.– MBraedleyMar 15, 2011 at 21:44
I believe that simply deleting the shortcuts file, which is
<steam installation dir>/config/shortcuts.vdf, should do it, but I haven't tried it myself so I suggest backing it up first. I don't believe it should do any harm in any case.
Another surefire way is to remove Steam and re-install it, but even if you back up all the game data locally first and then reload it, the whole process will take longer than just removing all the links one by one.
Renamed it to .bak - cheers– Neon1024Mar 15, 2011 at 23:01
1The path seems to have moved to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\########\config Mar 22, 2014 at 5:49
you can choose all the non-steam games by using CTRL and clicking. makes it shorter.
