    Steam Family sharing

    Recently I heard about steam family sharing and how you can share your games with family friends etc so I tough cool ill try this with my girlfriend she's always on my account anyway.

    So here is where I ran into a problem after we logged into each others account authorised etc I could see install and play her games but she could not see any of my games at all and I made 100% sure she authorized her account on mine and mine on hers so what's the problem here why is it she cant see mine and I can see her games.

    Does this look like Steam support to you?
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Construct additional pylons, get a colonoscopy, skin your cat and wear its pelt as a hijab and praise Allah from the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and if the problem persists call me in the morning.

    it's bullshit. She can't see it because your on the account playing a game. If you log off then she can play. When I did it with my brother he would play rust and I would get on my account and open CSGO then it would tell him I need my game back and kick him off and tell him to pay for the game if he wants to keep playing.

    Ye I figured that might be the problem but the games don't show up in the first place in her library to let her install them even when i'm offline for more than 24 hours

    Nope its is not but I've tried steam support didn't get any help anything besides them trying to tell me I'm doing something wrong I've also tryed asking several other places nothing turned up that really could help me i'm just asking because i'm out of ideas really and at this point i'm desperate ive had this problem for awhile now.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I bit the bullet in the summer sale and I helped her buy alot of the games for herself when she's travelling. But the reason i'm still really asking is because I'm afraid this problem is plaguing me as I've linked other accounts that ran into the same problem as this and in all honesty this was proberly a stupid thread to make I was just wondering if i'm not alone really in this situation

    Oh both accounts make sure the pc name is the same. The sharing shit is really for people that have there own steam account but share the same pc.
