Valve’s Steam And Windows 7 Integration

Steam Icon Download

Valve has done a great work integration Steam with Windows 7. The icon in the taskbar shows the download status of all the currently downloading items. This was demos in my case. I have the Steam icon in my start menu list and it has an extended menu allowing you to change status on Steam Friends.

Steam Taskbar Menu

This is a fine example of good OS integration from a third part software vendor.
