TcNo Account Switcher - Steam

The TcNo Account Switcher was originally built to be a Steam account switcher, and has grown since.

How does the program work?

Collecting info (Locally only):

VAC Status is shown with a red border around the profile's image. A red border is shown for limited, game banned or VAC banned accounts.

Why does it ask me for a password?

When you log into Steam with an account, it asks for a password. Click "Remember password", and then log in. When you switch away, and back to that account using the TcNo Account Switcher, it shouldn't ask you for a password.

As long as you check "Remember Password", and Steam remembers your password when you restart your PC, it will work. TcNo Account Switcher does not directly interact with passwords, nor does it ask you for them.

Managing accounts

Adding accounts to the Steam Switcher list:

  1. Click the Add New button - Do not "sign out" via Steam, this will forget that accounts password.
  2. Steam will restart, and ask you to input the user/pass. Enter the new details and make sure "Remember password" is checked. After login completes, it should appear in TcNo Account Switcher's list on the next launch. You should be able to switch to and from this account.

Removing accounts from the list:

To remove an account from the list: Right-click on an account and hit "Forget". This will remove it from loginusers.vdf, the removed account will also not "remember the password" in the Steam launcher.

If you removed an account you didn't want to remove, you can 'restore' it and clear 'backups' from the settings window.

Steam Cleaning

This section covers the "Advanced Cleaning" section, via the settings window. This section of the program is for advanced users who want to delete their history for accounts they've logged into.

Only use these buttons if you understand what they do. There is no undo button. Keep a backup of these files if you're unsure.

What does each button do?

Each button deletes the file(s) or registry keys written on it. The buttons and what they delete/clear are listed below. Note: {Steam} is the Steam directory automatically detected, or manually defined by the user.

General

Clear my login history

These files and registry keys will be generated by Steam when it's started. Make sure Steam is closed before clicking any of these buttons!
