Steam officially released Big Picture Mode today, for navigating Steam with a controller. They claim it can be used from the computer, without the need to hook up to a TV.

But, how do I do it? I've looked over all the menus and settings, and don't see anything for Big Picture Mode anywhere!

    Why the close vote? Just because you think it's obvious doesn't make it a bad question. – GnomeSlice Dec 4 '12 at 2:10

Do'h! Looks like I just needed to restart Steam (even though I had already gotten the update...)

Then the "Big Picture Mode" button is hard to miss - it's in the upper-right of the Steam UI.

  • It can also be launched directly from the Notification Tray icon (on Windows). Presumably there is some command line switch as well. – SevenSidedDie Dec 4 '12 at 16:13
