How to Opt Out of Beta Participation on Steam

By joining the Steam client Beta, you’ll be able to utilize and test the latest features before they’re published to the public. These options include upcoming additions that have been published early for testing purposes, as well as prototype options that will not be developed in the stable version very soon.

You may suffer bug fixes and crashes while getting an early look at the latest additions and modifications to the client. The term “beta” refers to a stage in which a product is being tested and the creators have not yet completed the final product. It’s completely typical for it to result in crashes and strange behavior. Of course, once the developers have pinpointed the issue, it is repaired in a day or two.

By opting out of the Beta Phase, you can quickly cure the majority of Steam’s issues. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

Disabling Beta

1. Start the Steam client. Then, on the upper left side of the screen, press Steam to open the client’s Settings by selecting it from the drop-down menu.

2. Navigate to the Account tab on the left side of the screen once you’re in the Settings.

3. There is a subheading here called “Beta Participation.” Underneath it, click the Change button.

4. After you click Change, a little window with all the specifics of the Beta Participation will display in front of you. Select the option “NONE- Opt out of all beta programs” from the drop-down box.

5. Restart your Steam client, as well as your PC, if requested. Please keep in mind that you may be asked to enter your account credentials after opting out. If you don’t have access to your account details, skip this step.

Steam will download some of the files or indicate the uninstallation process after you restart it. It will then relaunch automatically, with all of your Beta participations gone.

Note: This beta is only for the Steam client, not for any games. Using the Steam Store, you may choose to play beta versions of any game.
