Is there a way to empty the whole steam cart at once? I can only find a "Remove" link under each individual item.

Ludicrous amounts of DLC in the steam cart

I am not really keen to have to remove all 247 DLC for train simulator one by one ...

    1 804,29 euros on train simulators? Are you rich or something?

    @StarOS He likes trains, okay? XD I like the idea this entire list is made up of train simulators.

    @Prinsig It's not made up of train simulators, it's made up of DLC for Train Simulator. This game is notorious for having a lot of expensive DLC.

    You're lucky you didn't add 589 DLCs for Rocksmith 2014 like I did earilier this week. Steam client couldn't even load the cart at all. Dec 31 '15 at 11:03

As of now the Steam cart has a "Remove all items" link by default, so no tricks are necessary anymore.

Old answer:

Separate store sessions seem to have separate carts as well, meaning if you add an item within the steam app it will not show up in the cart when you log in with a browser.

Sadly this means Private Pansys answer won't work for the cart in the steam app.

The only way I could find was to clear the cookies of the steam integrated browser:

This will also clear some other settings, like the age you entered for the +18 games, but IMO that's a small price to pay.

    +1 for thinking out-of-the-box, this should definitely work.

    You could also delete the cookies manually from AppData\Local\Steam\htmlcache directory. Dec 31 '15 at 10:58
  • Thank you. This works, but the only caveat is that if you go to the page where the game/DLC is listed, they're still listed as 'in your cart' until you actually put something else into your cart.

Enhanced Steam has this feature. To use it, log into Steam from your browser, and install the extension from its homepage. Restart your browser if necessary, and you should see the 'Empty Cart' button on the Steam cart page.


If you can't even load the cart (for example, you added all of the Rocksmith DLC), click on the "Steam" menu and select "Settings", then go to the "Web Browser" tab and click "Delete all browser cookies".
