Is it possible to filter out Windows only games while on Windows? I'm getting a Mac soon for work purposes and I want to know what games I own will natively support Mac without having to buy Windows again.

I read this question but the issue with that is it only works while on a Mac, I am on a windows for now and cannot use the Mac client until I actually get the Mac.


After messing around with steam calculators, I found one that lets me filter games to various categories, like os x, linux, multi-player, single-player, etc.


Unfortunately, there is not. I have created a Steam category called "Windows Only" and tag all of the non-Mac games with that. However, I still have to occasionally go through the list and remove the tag, as Mac versions of games can appear without fanfare. (I do this by scrolling through the full list on a Mac and seeing if the Install button appears or not.)

  • thank you for the quick response, but i have actually found a way to filter it no matter what OS you're on. – Jaketr00 Oct 9 '15 at 16:29

This does not give you exactly what you are looking for, but it is the closest I can come up with, without coding something up. If you go into the Steam web store, and select Mac OSX, you can browse the catalog and see what you have. It will show you which games you already, as seen in the screenshot:

As you can see here, I'm on the Steam store website, so it does not matter what OS I'm running. I selected "Games" -> "Mac OS X" from the main menu, then sorted by game reviews, and you can see I have 4 of the 7 most popular games that are available for the Mac.

I'm fulling willing to admit this is not an easy way to get a complete list, but it should help you have some idea what you can be playing when you kill Windows.

  • Open Steam

  • Select the Store

  • Search the store for anything, we want to see the filters

    Steam: Search the store

  • Use the filters to the right of the search results: Narrow by OS

    Steam: Narrow by OS

  • Tweak your search

  • Why was this downvoted? Even though not the most practical, it is an alternative and viable addition. – Joachim Sep 28 '19 at 7:34
