You can revert the steam Chat.
Start steam with "-nofriendsui"

Edit: It is rumoured that this method doesn't work anymore.

From another thread in this support...

Add this to the shortcut of steam. -nochatui -nofriendsui

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -nochatui -nofriendsui

Enjoy.

- Thanks q.

Someone told me about it, dont know how he found out. Also, yeah, its pretty bad.
Is that the only way to not have the whole chat history in the chat window?
What does "remember open chats" do? I see no difference if its on or off.

Keep this thread active for the entire day so people see it. A lot of people like myself are going to want to get rid of the new UI.

Preferably pin it.
What a memory waste to display videos in chat AND store whole chats.
Or does it load the link images each time you open the chat?

Both is bad design

Actually, as a guy who saves entire chat logs as text documents, keeping the entire chat open is something that I missed since about December of 2015. But besides that, this update was garbage.

The new UI is horrible, furthermore there is no setting to revert it and how it overrides my current skin made me livid.
Editing the shortcut worked.

The only way I can think of atm is to do it manually through the terminal or you have to make a shortcut.

Runs this through your terminal:

"/Applications/Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/steam.sh -nochatui -nofriendsui"

I have never used a Macintosh but I believe it would be a similar process.
I created a shortcut to steam on the desktop and edited in the "-nofriendsui" and all there.
Not even giving us the option to revert in settings yet they keep Steam.exe.old in the directory, dumb move.
I didn't even use the skin for 5 minuets before downgrading again, litterally speaking.
Anyone who likes the skin, Enjoy the Blue version of Discord which sells games.

Even the old Steam icon stays away from the new steam. That amused me way too much.

God bless you! This is what I came here to complain about.

Valve: Please focus on things that are broken & fix them.
