Depressurizer is a program aimed at making it a bit easier to manage large Steam game libraries. It supports manual entry of games from other platforms, so you can categorize, filter and launch all of your (Steam, Origin, uPlay, GOG, etc) games from one location.

In addition to providing a way to quickly and easily modify games' assigned categories, it also lets you mark them as Favorites or as Hidden.

Depressurizer can also auto-categorize your games for you. Currently, it does so based on data from that games' Steam store pages. It can use genres, Steam flags (like "Single-Player" and "Steam Cloud"), Steam tags, Developer & Publisher info, How Long to Beat times, year, and/or Steam review user scores. Auto-categorizing can be done manually or automatically via shortcut.

It also saves your configuration information independently of Steam, providing an automatic backup in the event that Steam loses your configuration.

To install Depressurizer, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install depressurizer

To upgrade Depressurizer, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade depressurizer
