Steam just rolled out a new update for all clients adding a few features and one of them being Steam Music. It adds functionality to listen to music from games (purchased as a extra DLC). My question is, by default it is sorted by albums is there a way to show a list of all songs what Steam has found or are in it's database?

Only Albums, Artists, and Playlists are supported at this time. However, you could accomplish something of this sort by creating a playlist of all your songs.

To do this, first make sure you're in Albums view:
Albums view

Then right click on the first album and select Add to Playlist > New Playlist:
Add to Playlist > New Playlist

Then do the same for every album in the list, but add it to the existing playlist instead of creating a new one each time.

Then go to Playlists view:
Playlists view

Right click the playlist and select Rename:
Rename

Then call it something like "Library".

Now you have a list of your whole library that you can look through and play specific songs, or double click it to start from the top. You will have to keep this updated by adding all the new albums you get to this playlist. This is the best available method until a Songs view is actually implemented.

  • @Sebie I'm actually not sure if Steam supports external playlists, but this answer is meant to not have to use external software. – Keavon Sep 27 '14 at 6:19
  • It's ok, must have been my misunderstanding. Anyways thanks for the answer got it all working with your method! – user271360 Sep 27 '14 at 10:45
