How to Find Your Steam ID?
Your Steam ID is a unique identification code that can come in handy whenever you need to connect your account to a third-party website. It can also be used to easily send your profile to other users, invite friends, and more. As a result, every user has a unique 17 digit code linked to their account. And today, we’re going to find out how to find your Steam ID in a few very simple steps.
Find Your Steam ID: Step-by-Step
Step 1: Launch Steam
Step 2: Hover over your username and open your Profile
Step 3: Copy the 17 digits that appear at the end of the link located at the top section of the page
Usually, this extremely simple process gets the job done for most users. However, it’s not uncommon to follow these steps and yet still not see the Steam ID appearing. This is completely normal and luckily, there is a way to fix this as well.
If you still don’t see your Steam ID, follow these steps:
Step 1: Click on Steam in the left top corner of the client
Step 2: Click on Settings
Step 3: Click on Interface
Step 4: Locate where it says “Display Steam URL address bar when available” and make sure that it is ticked
Step 5: Finally, click on OK and repeat the steps from above to check if the 17 digit ID now appears
So, whenever someone asks for your Steam ID, this is how you can find it if it appears instantly with the first process we discussed. If it doesn’t appear then, simply follow the next order of steps and it should always fix the issue. After that, your Steam ID will always appear on your Steam profile and you will never have to repeat the secondary process.

Micro-Adjusting the Timer Resolution – Automating the Process
I have already talked about Amit’s discovery of increased precision while micro-adjusting your timer resolution in a previous article.

WebCord – Hardened Discord for Privacy
There are different ways in which you can improve your Discord experience – strip it, mod it, or use a different client. While modding and using a different client specifically is against the rules, the fact that people are still interested in such options means that there is something wrong with Discord at a fundamental […]
Avoiding Manifest V3 – Escaping the Ad-Pocalypse
While Manifest V3 has not been implemented yet by Google, the far-reaching implications of ad blockers being unable to function properly on any Chromium browser should already put the usability of Chrome/Chromium-based browsers under a question mark. I have been exploring what browsers would fit my needs as a gamer, and whenever I thought I […]
Win32PrioritySeparation – Understanding How the Values Impact Your Performance
Changing your Win32PrioritySeparation value in the registry has become a staple in the optimization process of your PC, but unfortunately, a lot of people editing their values rely on guesswork or internet myths. Using this or that value just because someone in a Reddit thread mentioned it is rather counterproductive so I took a deeper […]
DLSS for Competitive Gamers on 1080P
DLSS and other upsampling algorithms have become very popular lately due to games lacking proper optimizations and needing other ways of increasing performance without sacrificing visual quality completely.
