Steam users report a peculiar bug that causes their favorite games to become incontestable in the library.
Many gamers shared their reports on the official Steam subreddit, each with the same problem.
When a game opened Steam, the game left its collection randomly and removed them from Favorites, what happened? (Source)
I have 1000+ games, so he categorized them all around the last 10 years. I work on the desktop, and everything on my steam deck. I just got a new laptop and all the games are on show as uncategorized. (Source).
Steam is a platform and a store for PC games. In addition, it serves as a museum for countless enthusiasts who often spend hundreds or even thousands of games in their library.
To manage their expansive games lists, users can easily organize their games into specific categories.
Having compared multiple user accounts (two, three, four), there’s a significant issue with the popularity of playing in users’ libraries.
According to them, the games abruptly lose their assigned categories and are being relocated to the Uncategorized section.
I haven’t opened Steam for several weeks and, after I opened it last week almost all my games had lost their respective categories and entered a group of other people in the class which I never had before. I don’t know what happened. The category is actually intact. (Source)
Moreover, users noted all their custom categories had been wiped, except the persistent post-operability section.
I’ve got lots of games, so I am very specific when it comes to organization. Once I logged into Steam, all of my categories were left apart from just uncategorized. How do they sync from my old laptop to my new computer? (Source)
The problem appears to always be apparent when users log into Steam from a new PC or another device, or when they get it done for a specialized purpose.
What do you think the Uncategorized library bug is from Steam?
As the reports continued to accumulate, a broader issue emerged for the community.
One user claimed to have found a semi-fix by renaming all categories manually.
The renaming process could lead to an unintended improvement in the Steam cloud and allow the application to solve the issue.
Go back to your old PC and open Steam, and go through each collection, every one by one and rename them all. Unlike most people, one can rename one full, so just add one more number to one of them. It should start a new sync with the Steam cloud and when you open Steam again on your PC, you should now restore the remorse. (Source)
They haven’t released a formal statement in relation to this subject.
Nevertheless, one user suggests that the support team has already discovered this problem.
As soon as possible, we’ll monitor the situation and report new developments.
