Steam is a great gaming service, with lots of great features that let you stay in the know about your games without leaving your computer. One feature that you may want to hide is your recent activity. This is because Steam doesn’t show recent activity. Most people don’t want to see how many games they’ve played, or how many hours they’ve spent playing games. That’s why keeping recent activity hidden is such a helpful feature. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps: If you’re a complete stranger to Steam, that’s great! Just follow the steps outlined below to turn your recent activity back on. But if you’re already a member of Steam and you’ve just logged in for the first time in a long time, you’ll probably want to do this quick and easy. So that you can keep playing your favorite games and stay up to date on your recent activity.
What you need to know before turning your recent activity back on
This article will help you understand what to do next when you start to notice that your recent activity on Steam is missing. So that you don’t accidentally turn it back on while you’re playing a game and cause a scene.
Start with the survey
This is the first thing you should do when you notice that your recent activity on Steam is missing. What you’ll do here is fill out a survey about your Steam user account. This survey is just to help Steam keep track of what games you’ve played, how long you’ve been playing them, and how much time has elapsed between each game you’ve played. This information is very important to Steam and its users, so filling out the survey is a great way to “mark time” and help the service grow.
Open Steam and go to your Account Settings
This step is pretty self-explanatory. Once you’ve filled out the survey, you’ll want to head to your Account Settings to turn on your recent activity.
Once there, scroll all the way down to the bottom and click “Survey”
This is where you can answer some basic questions related to your Steam account. This includes how long you’ve been a member, what games you own, and how often you play them.
After you’ve answered those questions, you can turn back on your recent activity by selecting either “Recent Activity” or “My Surveys”.
That’s it! Your recent activity will now be hidden from view. You shouldn’t turn this back on while you’re playing a game just to keep things fair. But if you do, just select “Recent Activity” to see exactly what games you’ve been playing and how much time has elapsed between each one. And then, when you’re all done, select “My Surveys” to turn off the survey pop-up, and return your recent activity to the pool from which it was created.
Ever wonder how much time you’ve spent gaming over the years, or what games you’ve played over the years, or how you compare to other members of your community when it comes to hours logged? Well now you can find out with the help of a few simple tools. All you have to do is head on over to the website below, sign up for a free membership, and start taking surveys. From there, you’ll be able to see just how much time you’ve spent playing games, and how you stack up against other members of the community when it comes to hours logged.
Keep in mind that you can also enable/disABLE the “show my games” feature in the survey. This will let you know if someone is trying to gather information about your gaming habits without you knowing it. And that’s a really good thing, isn’t it?
