Tired of the dull background for our beloved ESF shortcut on Steam? If you go into the settings for Steam and opt into the beta, you can then take screenshots with Steam and those screenshots will serve as the games background image. Default screenshot button is f12.

edit: This isn't in beta anymore. You should be able to just launch a game and press f12 to take a screenshot now.

Check it out


Works for anything that can be added to Steam.

I have just found out that if you go to Steam/UserData/etc.
You can modify the screenshots:

Cool!

That's awesome. I am attempting to figure it out, but I'm sure I'll get there.
