Keyboard Shortcuts vs. Steam Client

August 19, 2016


Maybe it is just a coincidence or a temporary bug, but it appears that a recent update to the Steam Client login screen will not allow me to Ctrl-V paste my password from my password vault into the password field. This is an inconvenience I did not need while starting to become accustomed to the password vault. Fortunately, Right-clicking and then clicking on the “Paste” option now works, where it did not work in Linux before. I am grateful that Valve (the software house behind Steam) decided to make that little addition. Otherwise, I would have to enter the password manually. And it consists of a bunch of extended characters with lots of umlauts.

Another new password for Steam may be in order.
