Extended Installation

Steam decided to make it harder to customize the library with new layout introduced in late 2019.
To customize the library now, you have to alter a specific .css file that's get changed back after every restart. We can prevent this by starting steam with the start option -noverifyfiles enabled. After a steam update you have to redo the following install instructions.

Linux

  1. execute install.sh to move the custom css files into the right folder
  2. if you start Steam per autostart, check how to alter the autostart instructions in your distro and add the start option -noverifyfiles

Windows

  1. execute install.bat to move the custom css files into the right folder
  2. if you don't have autostart enabled, ignore these next steps
    1. press Win + R, type regedit and press Enter
    2. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run where you should see a key of type REG_SZ named Steam
    3. double click the key, and add -noverifyfiles to the end
  3. modify your Steam shortcuts by right-clicking them, going to properties, and in the Target field add -noverifyfiles

Other OS & Manual installation

  1. in Steam/steamui/css rename 6.css to steam6.css and library.css to steamlibrary.css
  2. move all .css files from the skin folder (skins/dracula/css) into the css folder of steam (steam/steamui/css)
  3. if you start Steam per autostart, check how to alter the autostart instructions in your OS and add the start option -noverifyfiles
