The new Steam Deck Valve platform has just received a new massive update that gives the platform the ability to use a well-applied function. Specifically, that feature is Windows 10, which is the Microsoft operating system on which most PCs are executed. And while it may seem strange to add Windows 10 to your own Steam Deck, do so can unlock new aspects of the platform that were not available before.
As of today, an announced valve that has launched new controllers for Steam Deck that give you the possibility to download Windows 10 on the handheld. At this time, only controllers have been released for GPU, WiFi and Bluetooth, and audio controllers are still in process. With this in mind, the only way you can listen to the audio from Steam Deck is through Bluetooth or a USB-C connection.
Perhaps the most important part of applying Windows to your own Steam Deck is that you will have to completely delete the data of your hardware to do so. The reason for this is that, in its current form, Steam Deck does not have a dual boot option. «For now, you can only perform a full installation of Windows. While Steam Deck is totally capable of performing a dual boot, the STEAME installer that provides a dual boot assistant is not yet ready, “Valve said about it.
Finally, if you are someone who prefers to add Windows 11 to your Steam Deck instead of Windows 10, Valve explained that this should be possible in the future. «Windows 11 requires a new BIOS that is currently in process (which provides support for FTPM) and will be sent soon,” explained Valve. Then, if you prefer to wait until Windows 11 is compatible with Steam Deck, that support should arrive soon enough.
If you have a Steam Deck for you at this time, will it look for downloading Windows 10 on your own platform? Let me know in the comments or send me a message on Twitter a @ mooreman12.
