Valve released a fresh Steam Beta Client update on March 22nd, and with it a bunch of bug fixes for both Steam Deck and Desktop Steam. You will need to be opted into the Beta updates channel to get this, otherwise you can wait for the next main Stable update.

First up this change is specific to the Steam Deck:

  • Fixed corrupted fonts showing during early startup for Thai language and a few others.

This next is for Desktop:

  • Fixed secondary context menu opening when right-clicking open context menu.

And all the rest that affect both below.

Steam Input

  • Fixed inverted axes when using "Setup Device Inputs".
  • Reverted change to default Conversion Style as "PlayerSpace" in "GyroToMouse" mode as it changed existing configs.
  • Fixed SteamDeck Configurator Templates' FlickStick default bindings.
  • (On those controllers with haptics support) a haptic bump will occur when gyroscope is turned on and off due to the Gyro Enable/Disable/Toggle Button, if haptics are not set to "Off".
  • Added Dualsense and Dualshock Gyro Enable/Disable/Toggle "center touch" and "center click" for completeness/to help with certain Paddle Mods.
  • Fix for Quick Settings "Enable Grip" Toggle.

Remote Play

  • Improved recovery from network disconnections before starting the stream.

Steam Cloud

  • Fixed case where files for one Steam account could be overwritten by files from another Steam account if the first account had logged in but not played the game yet on the device.


  • Fixed a situation where Steam would attempt to execute the Windows version of a title without using Steam Play.

Changelogs: Steam Deck / Desktop.
