Steam Deck Update Improves Library Performance, Features

Jul 03, 2023Jul 03, 2023

If you've got a Steam Deck, there's a good chance you've got a sizeable library of Steam Games to go along with it. And the more Steam Games you have in your Steam Deck library, you run the risk of encountering performance issues when navigating your games, especially if you're organizing those games via the Steam Deck's collections features to categorize them accordingly. For those who might've been running into that kind of issue, the handheld Steam machine's newest update has improved the performance of library collections while also adding some new sorting features, too.

The patch notes for the latest Steam Deck update consist mostly of fixes and general improvements apart from the new sorting option. This new option allows players to sort their games by the date that the games were added to the Steam Deck library, so if you've got so many games that you don't know what you got when, you'll be able to see a chronological order of your Steam Deck games. The patch notes detailing that change and more can be seen below:
