Disable Steam Pop Up Ads
How do I disable Steam ads from popping up?
What do you mean by steam ads? If you don't want steam popping up at all ingame:
- Right click the Steam icon in your taskbar
- Select Settings
- Go to the In-Game tab in the popup
- Uncheck "Enable Steam Community in-game"
If you mean notifications for new games, sales etc. go to file-settings-interface-declick 'notify me' at the bottom.

Overall, I think Steam sucks - just another 3rd party leech sucking money out of the game creation process.
Just for the record, Steam doesn't put ads in games. It has an overlay that lets you send messages to people and sends you optional updates. The whole thing can be disabled like people have said, but they are not advertisements.
