Valve pushed out a new Steam Deck Client Beta today! This includes some nice little fixes including adding up and down cursors to the virtual keyboard, many new pinned notifications, and an option to ignore Steam rewards redeemed by another user on the same device. This update also reduced the size of the controller support icon on app portraits, which I had no idea was too big!


  • Fixed opening onscreen keyboard in-game causing input to no longer go to game.
  • Added up/down cursor keys to keyboard, press shift then left/right cursor to use.
  • Added option to ignore Steam Rewards on Account page if they were registered by another user on the device.
  • Decreased size of the full & partial controller support icons on app portraits.
  • Added pinned notifications for new inventory items, trade offers, async game turns, moderator messages, offline chat messages, and help request replies.
