Hi guys. Does anyone here use Steam on here with W11? I am currently on the Windows Insider Program and on the W11 Release Preview Build. When I tried to launch Steam Client, it said unable to connect to Steam Network. I went into Steam exe properties, and set it to run as Admin. Thing is, Steam said next that it is in "compatability mode", and to disable any compatability settings in the Steam exe properties. Anyone here with W11 get Steam Client to connect to it's Network? Help appreciated :)

If compatibility mode doesn't work, then you probably have to wait until launch, there might be a compatible build when windows 11 officially come out, 10 days to go until windows 11 launch date.

I've ran Windows 11 since the first beta build and Steam has always worked perfectly fine for me.

Did you upgrade from Windows 10? Did you install Steam recently? Do you have any other network problems you can blame it on instead of Windows 11?
