How to add Non-Steam Games to the Steam Library

  1. Click on the games tab on top of Steam, as I did in the screenshot above.
  2. Click on “Add a Non-Seam Game to My Library…” in the menu that pops up.
  3. Choose the game you want to add from the shown list and put a check next to it.  Alternatively click on “browse” if you can’t find the game in the list and locate it on your hard drive on your own.
  4. Done! Now you can find the game in your library in the “games” section. But optionally you might want to add it to another category if you created your own categories in the library.
