  • Run (Windows-Key + R) "regedit"
  • Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsof\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • Doubleclick Steam: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" -silent -nochatui -nofriendsui
  • copy the content of the edit box somewhere, for example a new temporary notepad
 "D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" -silent

 "X:\Games\Steam\steam.exe" -silent -nochatui -nofriendsui
