Steam - Always open new chat in a new window

Ask a question

Under Steam all your new chat will be opened in new tab (by default). If you want to change this behavior and open your new conversation in a new window instead:
  • Click on Steam Menu > Settings > Friends
  • Check "Always open a new chat window rather than a tab"
  • Click on OK to validate
