Steam right clicking ? :<

Postby SkullsY on Fri Jan 09, 2009 6:17 pm

some reason my steam just randomly decided to not let me right click and view friends or any of the tabs... I can right click the icon, but when I left click any of the sub tabs, they don't load...

Any ideas?

Hmm, I get odd behaviour if I accidentally right click on the Icon; it opens up the context menu, but doesn't release focus for steam windows (ie, I can see a chat window but cannot select it with the mouse) and I have to left click an option before I can use steam at all. Perhaps it's somehow linked with your problem?

if u get it try bringing up ur task manager and closing gameoverlaygui.exe that should make the overlay system close and if im right it will restart as soon as u press shift and tab, or when u join a server.

Hopefully that should do it mate :)

remember if because you've come out of a game on a source powered game u need to type
record test
stop
to refresh the game and stop any visual errors :)
