That feature broke at least a few days before the beta for me. The option is still available and checked in my steam settings so I don’t think it’s been removed, just not working right now either in beta or normal mode. But you can still rather quickly get to it through the view menu up top, I too would like it to pop up as it used to though.
Sounds like an excellent thing to bring up in their feedback forum. Though it’s not an option I’ve seen myself before was it only there when running through linux?
I’m largely pleased with the beta version myself so far. I can’t say I care one way or the other about the graphical layout, could take it or leave it. The ability to search and sort your games with steam tags is a huge one for me, something I’ve wanted for years and couldn’t understand why they didn’t implement. Used to use a 3rd party site for that feature alone.
I’m also quite pleased with the ability to organize games by dragging and dropping them into “collections” now, you can even select multiple titles at once. Makes it much easier to organize instead of having to fiddle around with right click menus for each one.
Another neat little thing is sorting installed game by size on disk, it will even show you their size on the thumbnail. Makes it very easy to chase something down to uninstall if you need to clear up some space.
They should make the elements of the game page modular and possible to be shifted around. Maybe I don’t really care about which friends are playing the game and want the screenshot thing up top. Maybe allow me to hide elements I don’t care for like my review or card drops.
Having the game’s info details available on the game’s page is great too. I hope they also add the tags there. I used to go to the store page for games to check that info out, now it can be brought right up without any additional loading.
Not entirely happy with the new game count however. I kept track of my game count by the number shown in the library all games menu. This did not used to include F2P games not currently installed and some other things. Now the new count doesn’t match and I’m unsure of how many games I own and what/how to count them. I need to keep outside track in case steam decides to start sneakily remove my games, I’m sure you all understand.
