So you’ve finally got your hands on the Steam Deck and you’re ready to enjoy some games. But your Steam library is pretty barebones, and you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars buying games you already have access to through your Xbox Game Pass subscription. Although you can install Windows on your Steam deck to access your Xbox Game Pass library, it’s not the only way to get Xbox Game Pass on handheld console.

You can get Xbox Game Pass on your Steam deck with a simple workaround that involves adding a Microsoft Edge shortcut to the Steam library in desktop mode. The best thing about this workaround is that it comes straight from the programming team at Microsoft, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally breaking your brand new console. If that sounds appealing, follow the steps below to access Xbox Game Pass games on your Steam deck.

Create a Microsoft Edge shortcut in the Steam library to get Xbox Game Pass games on your Steam deck

Before we begin, connect an external keyboard and mouse to your Steam Deck via a USB-C hub. It’s not necessary, but it will make the process a little easier. Then follow these instructions to get Xbox Game Pass on your Steam deck.

Fire up your Steam deck and enter desktop mode by navigating to the power settings menu. Alternatively, you can switch to desktop mode by holding down your Steam Deck’s power button. Select the shopping bag icon at the bottom of the screen to open the Discover Software Center. Open the options menu and navigate to Applications > Internet > Web Browser. Select Microsoft Edge Beta on the following page and choose the download option to download and install the browser. After installing Microsoft Edge Beta, navigate to Steam, select Microsoft Edge in the Add Game window, and then select the Add Selected Programs button. Now return to the desktop and open Konsole from the application launcher to open a terminal window. Type the following command in Konsole and press Enter: flatpak –user override –filesystem=/run/udev:to com.microsoft.Edge Exit Konsole by typing “exit” and pressing Enter. Go back to Steam in desktop mode, right-click Microsoft Edge in the Steam library and select Properties. Open Boot Options from the Properties menu and replace everything that comes after “e @@u @” with the following command: –window-size=1024.640 –force-device-scale-factor=1.25 –device-scale -factor=1.25 –kiosk “https://www.xbox.com/play” (Optional) Change the controller layout by right-clicking Microsoft Edge in the Steam Library and going to Manage > Controllers -Layout > Browse Browser Configurations. Select the controller layout you want, and you’re good to go.

This workaround essentially adds a modified Microsoft Edge shortcut to your Steam library, allowing you to access your Xbox Game Pass games on your Steam deck. Switch back to gaming mode, select Microsoft Edge in the Steam library and sign in with your Microsoft account to enjoy your favorite games.

We recommend using a keyboard and mouse to play Xbox Game Pass games on your Steam deck while connected to an external display. If you don’t have a compatible dock to create such a setup, check out our recommended Steam Deck Docks to order one right away.
