How To Unhide Games In Steam

In this guide, we will be taking a look at how to unhide games in Steam on your PC or laptop. If you have a very long games list as we have, then you might have hidden some games from your library that you don’t really enjoy anymore and don’t plan on downloading again. And instead of getting a Steam refund, you decided to hide the Steam game. It is very easy to see the Steam games you have hidden from your library and to unhide them again in the Steam Client.

Steam has hundreds and thousands of games available to purchase and add to your Steam account, and after some time you can end up building quite the Steam library. That’s why hiding the Steam games you finished and are bored of can help reduce your Steam list, making it easier to view other games and keep things tidy.

Below we have listed the steps on how you can perhaps recover old treasure games that you once enjoyed that you have hidden. And at least if you have hidden the games then you do not need to repurchase or redownload the game again!
