The Steam Deck – despite some of its flaws – is an impressively powerful handheld from Valve that has the potential to leave a mark on the industry. One of its most prominent selling points is the ability to switch the console OS from SteamOS (default and based on Linux) to Windows for a smoother gaming experience, although drivers for the latter of these operating systems weren’t available at launch.

Now though, fans can download official Windows drivers for GPU, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, as well as Audio Drivers to use on the Steam Deck (for links, click through here). A point worth noting here is that Steam Deck currently supports only Windows 10, and support for Windows 11 will be dropping sometime in the near future with a BIOS update that enables fTPM.

Also, using both operating systems via Dual Boot doesn’t work either – but support will arrive with SteamOS version 3. In a recent interview, Valve designer Greg Cooner revealed that multiple games are in development at the studio – read more on that through here.
