I can't open Steam anymore! Help!

I double click the icon on my desktop but it doesn't open! And I can't even launch a steam game either!

Try opening task manager, look for something called steam bootstrapper or something like that, end that process. It should close every other steam process with it. Then try opening it again. Might work.

@Xuan12 If that doesn't work, just reboot your PC. If that doesn't work, reinstall steam.

Go to task manager and go to the process tab, and go down the list looking to see if a 'steam client' is already open. If it is then click it and click close application and try again to open steam.

@Allelse oooooohhhh I see ok. Btw i said "stop process" because i translated the french version 😅😅😅😅 so yeah it should be "end process" in english :)

Ahhhhh ok! Well as long as it all got sorted out. Hehe! You must have been terrified for a moment there though :P

@Allelse well not really hehe I thought i had to contact steam or just uninstall then reinstall steam xD but now I know what to do :D
It went through a large update recently, maybe there's an issue with that?
