Steam - Always open new chat in a new window

April 2018

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
