I have a substantial Steam library, and a new computer with plenty of disk space. I want to queue up all (or most) of my Steam games for downloading.
I know I can click on each one in turn, but I have to click a few times and wait while Steam creates locale game cache files.
Is there a way to do this quickly, preferably in bulk?
Steam has recently introduced an option to queue up games to be installed through a web interface. Make sure the target PC is running the Steam client, then go to your games list on the Steam website (the easiest way to do this is to click Community -> Profiles -> Games in the Steam client), open the All Games tab and click the install button next to the games you want to have installed. If not all of your games are showing up, click on Per page: All at the bottom of the page.
This is massively faster than going through the usual install dialog.
