Overview

Programs and Tools

Microsoft Windows & Steam Client basics for XCOM®

  •  %USERNAME% is set by Microsoft Windows at Login.
  •  %Steam% value may be found within Steam: "Steam" menu > "Settings" > "Downloads" panel > "STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS" button > "FOLDER" column
    • Personally, I (being the contributor who made the template that is the source of this line) have a "Simple Volume" (on an external-USB-Drive) mounted in the "folder" listed here.
      • It is highly recommended that "C:\Program Files\" not be in the path to this "folder"!
