Valve has pushed out another small but very useful update to the Steam Deck Client Beta, here's a run over what has changed this time including how you install games. This update is available in the Beta and Preview branches. To change you can go into Settings > System > Steam Update Channel.

Here's what's new:

General:

  • When installing a game always show the install location picker if there is more than one library folder, and automatically focus the default library folder when the dialog shows up
  • Fixed issue where Steam would be unable to connect in some cases after suspend/resume
  • Fixed issues where the main window would close and then be reloaded:
    • When selecting a friend in the previously or recently played
    • When selecting a guide in a game's Community Feed
    • When selecting the "Downloading" label on a game's detail page

Desktop Mode:

  • Center the popup controller configurator window when viewing controller layout
  • Fixed the old version of Big Picture Mode opening when hitting the Steam/Guide button on the Steam window
  • Fixed recently played games not showing up in the Recent Games shelf in library

Quick video overview with a couple of extra fun bits at the end:

That's my main happiness point with it! Often losing WiFi contact when resuming.

Finally, I can stop starting downloads with desktop mode to get the drive I want

Thanks Valve!

Nice. I just ran into this issue for the first time this past week and was really confused.
