Default How to disable that annoying new steam friends list on startup

So steam updated yesterday, now there's a new friends and chat and whatever blahblah I don't care just tell me how to turn it off. Like this:


Quote:
I found this and it works. Just remember that you did this and how to undo it in the event that they update the client.

* Open your Registry Editor (Windows > Run > RegEdit)
* Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Run
* Find the entry named Steam and add the parameters:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" -silent -nochatui -nofriendsui
This stops steam from opening the friends list window every time you start the client, which if you have it run on startup is of course every fucking day. Why do they let this shit get past testing?

Was hoping this'd be a post to get the old UI back.

I got it earlier today, just opened Steam again and it didn't appear. Just a little icon at the top of the page for it. Maybe so many complaints they've changed it already. Will have to see if it comes up tomorrow when I turn PC back on and fire Steam up.

There hasn't been a client update since yesterday. Can they sneak stuff like this in under the radar?


Anyway, if the regedit way doesn't work you can just add "-nochatui -nofriendsui" to a shortcut and it should also work.

I rather like it versus the old one as well. The auto-popup on start is slightly obnoxious tho.
