New Steam feature lets you pin windows over games, including guides, notes, and web pages

Info unearthed by SteamDB’s Pavel Djundik in March pointed to a significant Steam update in the works, one that would include a way for players to take their own “game notes” as well as changing the way notifications work. Valve has now officially announced those features, and several more, pushing them live in the current Steam client beta.

As Valve’s Steam desktop update (opens in new tab) explains, the in-game overlay has been overhauled “completely”. The thing that pops up when you press shift-tab to check what that achievement you just earned was about (or have a cheeky look at a guide), now has a toolbar with separate sections for “friends chat, achievements progress, guides, discussions, a browser, and more.” You can pin any of those windows so they remain visible while you’re playing too, just in case you need to keep referencing how to complete the Ranni quest in Elden Ring.
