Valve has finally overhauled one of the most used parts of Steam.
steam There is a new beta update. Some of the changes in this change were actually leaked two months ago, but players who chose to participate in the Steam beta can now finally see their actual effects.
The Steam download page has been completely redesigned. On the one hand, it has a better appearance, easier-to-use color palette and more prominent game art. The page will now also provide more detailed information about the actual downloaded content, and specify when to allocate disk space, which will end many people’s confusion about the status of certain updates. Steam now displays the type of update you are downloading more intelligently. With a new (i) icon, you can click to see if it is a standard patch, shader pre-cache, workshop content, etc.
Now you can rearrange the entire download queue by simply dragging different games with the mouse. What’s more, let us collectively breathe a sigh of relief that there is a “Clear All” button to turn all notifications into red.
The library has also undergone an equally large upgrade. The new storage manager works similarly to what you might have on a game console: it accurately displays the space usage of Steam’s various library folders (games, DLC, etc.). You can more easily discover which Steam folder your games are installed in and move them from there.
Although Valve has not set a public release date for these changes, it usually takes one to two weeks for the Steam beta to finally display its content on the main client, so the wait should not be too long. As always, you can opt-in to the beta directly via Steam> Settings> Account. Read the full change log on Steam.
