How to Appear Offline On Steam (by WePC)

Gaming by yourself is a nice change of pace sometimes, but that's difficult to do with online multiplayer games. 

Sometimes you just want to play games solo, even in online-only games like Destiny 2. Of course, with a friends list filled with fellow players, that may be difficult, as you can get invited to complete a Weekly Strike or join an hours-long Raid. 

Not to mention, you often need to play on your own if you have a number of quests, bounties, or other activities you need to complete. In this case, having players who want to do other stuff is a bit obnoxious, so I often avoid this by making my account appear offline. Here’s how you can do it too:
