This is a guide on a cool feature I found for minecraft. It also works on most other games. If you have steam and minecraft, you can combine them together. Why you ask? Because you can use the shift+tab feature and use the f12 screenshots to post it on steam. Or if you like to launch games from steam. This is very helpful if you play in full screen mode because you can open a tab to vote without having to exit minecraft. Also in full screen mode you can see your battery life. The possibilities are endless here . Steps: 1. Download the new minecraft launcher. (It has been recently updated.) If you don't have it, it won't appear on the list. Download it here. Make sure you use the Minecraft.msi one. 2. Download steam if you don't already have it here. Then make an account. 3. Go to the top left corner and select: "Games." 4. Select: "Add A Non-Steam Game To My Library" 5. Find minecraft in the list and select it. Then hit: "Add Selected Programs." If you can't find minecraft, refer back to step one. 6. Go to your library on the left, select minecraft on the left column, and then hit play. 7. Enjoy the steam features such as opening a browser to look at forums, or seeing if your friends are on. Also use f12 to take a screenshot. You can also play music! These steps are for if you want desktop/taskbar shortcuts for it. Desktop Shortcut: 8. So now you want a shortcut, so you can easily do these features. Well guess what. There is a way . Right click minecraft on the left column and hit: "Create Desktop Shortcut." 9. Now it looks wierd. Still not perfect. Go to your desktop, right click it and hit properties. 10. Now hit: "Change Icon" and then "Browse." After that go to the top of the file explorer window. And paste this in: Code: C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft . Usually it is there. If its not there, then browse and look for the minecraft.exe file, it will be somewhere. After that select the .exe file, hit: "open," then the minecraft logo, ok, and lastly, apply. Now you can use that . Taskbar: Watch this video and do the same for minecraft. You need to make a desktop shortcut though. (It works for windows 8 too) Its steamception time! Tell me in the comments if you plan to use it.
