Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t showing up in the Steam Library for most of the players who have purchased it. According to multiple reports, rebooting the system may come in handy for some Cyberpunk 2077 players. However, issues with the game files or even the Steam client can trigger several issues with the game listing in the Steam library whatsoever. So, it’s better to check out all the methods one by one until the problem gets fixed completely.
Fix: Cyberpunk 2077 Not Showing Up in Steam Library
Here we’ve shared a couple of possible workarounds that should gonna help you out. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into it.
1. The game is uninstalled (or not fully installed)
The chances are high that somehow your Cyberpunk 2077 game is uninstalled or not fully installed yet on the PC. If it’s uninstalled or stuck in the installation process then you might not find the game in your Steam library most probably.
- Make sure that the game files are available in the proper location on the PC drive wherever you’ve saved them. Head over to the default Steam folder location on the PC. For example – C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamappsCommon.
- If your games have been installed on a different partition then you can try the following steps:
- Launch the Steam client > Go to the Steam tab from the top-left corner.
- Click on Settings > Go to Downloads.
- Click on Steam Library Folders. (Your Steam Library folders open in a window)
- Now, click on Add Library Folder > Checkmark the particular folder in which you’ve previously installed the Cyberpunk 2077 game.
- Once the proper destination folder is added, your Cyberpunk 2077 game might show up in your Steam account.
2. Check the game license
It’s worth recommending to check out the license or subscription for your purchased game on the Steam account that you’re trying to find in the Steam Library section. If it’s not showing up in the library then try purchasing the Cyberpunk 2077 game again. Sometimes issues with the internet connection or the Steam server-related issues may trigger the license validation process error.
So, license authentication is required to appear on the game list. Make sure to simply restart the PC to refresh the system glitch or any kind of temporary cache data issue.
3. Unhide the game
Multiple Steam users have reported that sometimes any particular game might get hidden unintentionally. So, you should unhide the game by following the steps below:
- Launch the Steam client > Find out the Cyberpunk 2077 game on the store page.
- Now, click on the Play now button > A new window will appear that indicates the required storage space and other info with the installation.
- Click on Next > The installation process will allocate the required storage space and a new page will appear.
- Then check if your Cyberpunk 2077 game is downloading or not in the background.
- Click on the link that allows you to manage your downloads. (It will take you to the downloads page)
- Right-click on the Cyberpunk 2077 game > Click on Set Categories.
- Make sure to uncheck the box if it says ‘Hide this game in my library’.
4. Force Update Steam
We’ll recommend you force update the Steam client on the PC because it may fix several issues with the game updates or installation. To do so:
- Open File Explorer on the PC > Go to the Steam installation folder where you’ve installed it. [By default, C:Program Files (x86)Steam]
- Now, locate the ClientRegistry.blob file and delete it.
- Restart the PC and launch the Steam client.
- It’ll automatically start searching for the latest update and install it. [If available]
5. Reboot your PC
Make sure to reboot the PC to apply changes or clear out temporary glitches whatsoever. Sometimes issues with the system or any specific application can be fixed completely in a simple reboot.
