Like the question disable Steam notifications in-game only is there a way to stop getting a popup when a friend starts playing a game?

I tried following the global method as outlined above, as that is what I want:

Either notifications need to be turned off globally (View -> Settings -> Friends -> Uncheck all the "Display a Notification" check boxes)

However I can't see the 'Friends' tab.


To do this you:

  • Open "Friends & Chat".
  • Click on the cog in the bottom left corner of your profile box.
  • Go to the notifications page.
  • Untick the boxes you don't want notifications about.
    For the question it was the boxes next to "when a friend joins a game".
