forgot my steam password, but steam always opens in big picture

#1ToastyAnakinPosted 7/31/2013 4:36:01 PM
I had some sketchy messages on steam so I changed my password. I can't remember it and Steam doesn't have an option to retrieve it because it opens in big picture. Is there a way to disable this?

I cant get there. I don't remember my password. I know how to get that when im signed in.

Steam big picture doesnt have password retrieval

I don't think you can get to that if you aren't logged in.

But if you go into where you installed steam you should be able to delete the clientregistry.blob and start steam.exe again that should force it to start in normal mode.

nvm that won't work

But why can't you just use a web browser to get your login information?

no luck. It auto starts in big picture and the clientregistry comes back

Might be a stupid reply. But can't you just exit to deaktop from Big Picture Mode? The few times I ran that mode thats all I did and it wen't back to the normal Steam UI
