Tired of playing games on Steam, or do you need to free up some space on your computer? It’s simple, you can just delete your Steam account. However before you take this extreme step, you have to think over your decision first. This is because your Steam library may contain hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of games. As such deleting your account means you will lose all your games.
Delete Some Games
Instead of just deleting your entire Steam account, if you want to free up some space in your computer think about this. Deleting your account is a permanent decision and one that denies you access to all Steam games you have purchased. As such, you’d be better off just deleting Steam games that you no longer play.
To do this:
- Open Steam on your computer
- Click on the “Library” button which is at the top menu.
- Right-click on the game you want to delete.
- Click on the “Uninstall…” option.
- Tap on “Delete” when asked if you’d like to delete game files.
- Repeat the process to uninstall any other games from Steam.
