I do not know if this is the place to ask, if not lead me there, but
I am looking for a method (system editing, script, program, option) to disable the guide key and all shortcuts that Valve's platform Steam intercepts, and to perform non-game related tasks.
like all media buttons.
I do not know what the controller combo's are, but you can trigger absolutely 100% of the media keys with just one controller. I've seen them all, Mail, Web, Stop, Play, Pause, Back, Forward …
Combinations also open a big picture (but not in a working condition)
Combinations also open the steam keyboard.
The list of non-gaming inputs goes on and on and on.
Obviously in the middle of a game absolutely none of these is interesting to me.
Only if I let my character / my car go up and down do you know that will be good for me.
Also out of the game.
Because I do not use my controller when I'm not playing, I use a mouse and a keyboard. It drives me crazy that I need to explain that, but the idea that I want to use my controller for desktop tasks is wrong and should not be accepted. Which is what valve has.
I would like to find a way to prevent this.
Disabling "guide button focused steam" in the settings of the Big Picture Controller does not work. it just prevents this action specifically and not all the rest. And to make matters worse, this option will come on again from time to time.
I do not know what the best solution would be because these inputs are unlikely to be combined into anything significant on any step of the way before they reach Steam's ears. You're probably just a single press of a button, and it's just steam that turns it into garbage.
That's why I am afraid that this is something that requires modifying the Steam app itself.
Any ideas for a simple solution?
