in General Chat
I hold LSHIFT and TAB to open the Steam overlay, right? Quite often whenever I click on chat and type something, the Steam overlay randomly just pops up. It happens almost every single time during the hyper select screen, and I don't know what's causing it. I'm making sure to stay away form the Tab button, and it seems to happen when I hold Shift to use a capital letter or something, I think.

    I think the steam overlay needs to be on if you want to be able to use big picture for adjusting the deadzone controller settings though. It's something that should be looked into i think.

    Hey there!

    Is this still happening to you? Can you let us know a couple of things?
    • Are you using big picture mode?
    • Are you using a controller?
    • What OS are you on?
    • Do you have any other keybindings set up to bring the Steam overlay up?

    Thank you,
    Raz

    Yeah, it still happens to me. When I press shift in chat, it randomly opens the Steam overlay now and then. I'm pretty sure I don't have Big Picture mode on since I barely touch that. I'm using Windows 10 and playing with the Keyboard. Isn't the default key SHIFT + TAB? I've never touched it otherwise so it should only be that.
