Improve Your Gaming Experience with Steam FPS Counter in Big Picture Mode
steam big picture mode makes it possible to play pc games in fullscreen on any tv using your computer's monitor. if you're using a pc with a gpu that can handle it, you can take advantage of it to play games that you might have previously skipped because they weren't optimized for that screen size.

steam recently added a feature to the big picture mode to allow players to listen to music while playing a game in big picture. it's pretty simple and it works as described, but it's also a great way to take advantage of the pc's audio capabilities. to activate the audio mixer, you need to press shift + tab. the player will then be able to mute the game sound, adjust the volume, or both.
the mixer is supported for older games in the windows 10 fall creators update (1709), explains steam, and should be available for games that support audio mixing for windows (afw). the afw sounds like it's a proprietary api that valve has access to, but it's not a very well-known one, so there are some games that don't support it. for example, while we all enjoy that option, there are some games out there that still don't include it.
we've already mentioned steam big picture mode a couple of times in this article, but it's something you should definitely try out, especially if you're playing pc games on a tv or a projector. it's perfect for movies and tv shows, and can come in handy if you're trying to play something on the pc and have your console in the same room.
check out the video above to see how easy it is to set up steam's big picture mode, and if you want to try it out, head over to the steam site and download it from the page above. it's free, and you'll be able to play steam games on a tv and use steam's big picture mode at the same time.
