  • Is there any way to prevent alt+enter from putting Steam into Big Picture Mode?
    reddit.com/r/Steam | 2021-10-15
    There is a tool called https://www.autohotkey.com/ that allows you to rebind any keys or shortcuts as you want. You can use that tool to disable this shortcut globally or just when Steam window is active. To do the latter use the following code for you AutoHotkey script: #IfWinActive, ahk_exe steam.exe !Enter::return The first line ensures the rebind works only when steam.exe is the active window and the second line rebinds Alt+Enter to nothing.

  • Idk how you do it
    I never used it because is a wrapper of AHK, but there's something called Macro Creator from a guy (nick-)named Pulover.
  • which one is it?
    You should check this out, makes the entire process really really simple as you just record actions and assign keybinds to them. I made a macro once to detach 60 1s resonators (full inventory) and add 60 dense fossils to them. Made it so much easier on my sanity to craft stuff, I spent over 5k fossils on chests that league
