    Steam Family Sharing

    Hi,

    I just had a quick question about Steam Family Sharing which I imagine some of you may use. I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere else!

    So, I have a steam account as does my partner. I want her to be able to play the games I have bought but I want her to have her own saved games so that we're not using the same save file. I find a lot of games nowadays have no option for starting new games without overwriting the existing saves so my question is does steam family sharing create different save files so that my partner and I can have totally independent games on my steam account?

    Thanks,

    Asokn

    Yes, Family sharing does exactly that. The shared games act like they were related to her account so it's a completely different profile.

    What Tikey said - pretty much the entire point of Steam Family Sharing is to solve that issue.
