How to find Steam Game installation directory... Where is the executable located?
So, I backed up my game and then deleted the directory. I needed the space at the time- figured later I could simply paste the directory back where it was and I would be good to go. The problem is, I forgot exactly where the game was located. The game is still in my list of games, and is highlighted in white like it is active- but of course when I click Play it says games executables could not be located. I tried clicking properties, figured it would say somewhere in properties where hte installation directory is. I dont see it listed. I tried clicking Browse Local Content, but nothing happens- obviously because the files are not there.

So is there any way I can find out where my game is supposed to be installed, where Steam thinkings the files are located?

It should be {Drive letter}\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\{Game name}.

And Overwolf is a free piece of gaming software, like Steam is.

It's somewhat like a recording software mixed into something along with TeamSpeak kind of things.

If you're on a mac, follow these steps.
1. Be in finder.
2. In the bar on the top, click "Go"
3. Click "Go to Folder..." It should the the second to last option.
4. Paste this into the bar. "~/Library/Application Support/Steam"
5. Finally, click the "Go" button.
