This is useful and makes getting to my Steam games so much easier, though the entire tile shouldn't open every time.

Does what is says

This makes your start menu look pretty snazzy. I wish it didn't have to open the steam tile app before launching the game

Stop notifications!

I like it enough to continue using it even though it has to open up before launching anything. I get why it has to do that. But please, please, please! Stop telling me you're going to launch the game and just launch the game. There's only an OK button and it immediately launches anyway, so the dialog box on top makes it so I can't just kill Steam Tile when I'm done. I have to click OK and then close Steam Tile. If Steam Tile can also start minimized that'd be great, too. I don't need to see what it's doing, and I don't mind a simple right-click on the taskbar to kill it after I'm done.

App Encounters Problems... Etc...

The app has had to be re-installed multiple times and when it does end up working, it has to open an un-needed dialogue box saying the game is opening. The app doesn't close itself out automatically. Looking for an alternative now...

Nice Tiles

Nice Tiles only thing I would change is how app opens with the tile as it launches. It's a bit obtrusive .

Good, Does its Job

I'd rate this a five-star, had it not been for the fact that when you open a game using the pinned tile on the start menu, it opens steam tile itself, which is very annoying.

Live Tiles not working in Windows 10

Unfortunately live tiles does not work in Windows 10. Live Tiles for individual games work though

W10 - Pretty Good for what it does.

Only wish there was a way to lower the size of the tiles, for people with 100+ games, these big tiles take too much space. lots of scrolling. But I assume its Steam (?maybe?) that have set the tile size and this "app" is just using it, instead of making their own?! just guessing here, Great App. Thank you.

Works Most of the Time

This does everything what it's supposed to be...at least most of the time. I like being able to see my Steam games as start menu shortcuts--but sometimes the tiles just stop working or disappear from my start menu completely, forcing me to have to redo the process of pinning my games.
