If you want to create a custom Steam Controller configuration for a game you have to add it to your Steam Controller first, and I want to do so for games such as slither.io, and I also would just like to have them in my library.

I know I can just add a shortcut to my browser that opens that link, but Steam doesn't seem to recognize this, at least with Google Chrome.

  • I believe in order for Steam to recognize a link it must be presented as an executable, or .exe. Otherwise, steam will not detect it.

  1. Add your browser (Firfox / Chrome ...) as a non-Steam game
  2. Go to your library, right-click the browser and select Properties

Go to Properties

  1. Add the url as an command line argument:

enter image description here

If you wan't to change the name of the game or the icon you can do this in the properties panel (Step 2).

If you wan't to open the game in a new window:

  • Firefox : -new-window url
  • Chome : --new-window url

I've tested it for Chrome an Mozilla Firefox

Non steam game web game

Hope it helped :)

  • I just tested it with Google Chrome, Steam doesn't recognize it as open. Note that I already had Chrome open to begin with, but if I have to close it every time I want to play, it's not worth it.

  • in firefox you can add something like new-window <url> to open a new tab, in chrome you can add --new-window to open a new window :) May 5 '16 at 17:47
  • for me it worked even if a have chrome open May 5 '16 at 17:53
  • Okay, I've done that, and it successfully opens a new window, but Steam still doesn't recognize it as running. Does this work for you? Does it make your name green and say "playing non-Steam game <name>" on Steam friends?
