No. You cannot convert a CD-key into a Steam gift. Once you use the key, the game is tied to your account.

No. When you activate a key it is added to your library as a game. You cannot make a key into a gift. There are no special keys to make gifts. You can only get a gift when you buy from Steam and choose it as gift or when another Steam user sends/trades you a gift.

I don't see how that is relevant to what I said.

It kind of is. Technically, you gave an off-topic piece of information that wasn't relevant to his question, and he just followed up on that.

Whether he used the key or not doesn't change anything. He asked whether he can use a key to make a Steam gift. He can not. Once the key is used, the game is activated and can no longer be converted to a gift. How is that off topic in regards to his question?

I must say LEOdf helped me.... He really Answered me but you two not. If you hate yourselves go to another discussion and fight there...

It is not possible to convert a CD Key into a Steam Inventory Game Gift item.
I hope that answer is simple enough for you.

If you would like to "gift" someone, just give your unused keys to someone else you wanted and let them use the key to activate it in their own library.
