How to Use Steam’s FPS Counter

If you want to know what frame rate your Steam games are running at, there are plenty of third-party programs to help you out. But if all you need is a very basic counter and you don’t care about other hardware stats, you don’t need to download them – you can use a feature built into Steam.

Here’s how to configure Steam’s built-in FPS counter for your PC.

I go with the top left, me.

  • Open Steam.
  • Go to Steam > Settings > In-game.
  • Below In-game FPS counter, select the corner where you want the counter to appear. You can also check High contrast color if you prefer.
  • Click on Ok.

Now go ahead and start your game. You should see the frame rate your game is running at displayed in the corner you specified.
