Steam Companion (Alfred Workflow)

Workflow for Alfred that enables various interactions with Steam

  • launches a game, directly without opening the game library
  • installs a game from the library
  • uninstalls a game
  • creates an alias (shortcut) for a game (creating an alias by right-clicking the game in the Steam library does not work in the current Steam version, so this is basically a workaround)
  • searches the Steam Store – in the App or the default Browser
  • launches your wishlist
  • validates game files
  • activates product
  • launch Steam in Big Picture (+ there is a remote trigger for this)
  • automatic updates of this workflow via OneUpdater
