I don't know why but for a few days Steam has been always starting in Big Picture mode.

It has even been doing this for the login screen:

Big Picture login screen

How do I fix this?

Have you checked if the option to always start in Big Picture Mode is set? It's on the Interface tab.

  • Three things : 1) How did that box ticked it by itself >< because I'm sure I never ticked that ? 2) I'm blind and missed that in the parameters 3) Thanks :D
