    Web Browsers works fine but STEAM APP still no web con.

    So far you guys here at & have never failed to give me great answers or ideas. As always, I do my best on my end to search for my answer before I submit a new post. Well, I just cant find any answers through searching here, OR google that has helped me.
    So my web browser's works fine, all 3 in fact (Chrome,Firefox, Explorer) however, when I open my steam app (gaming program) it keeps telling me it is not establishing any internet service and to check my settings. I opened up origin and it works fine! another related note, My Nvidia Gforce Experience App that keeps tabs on latest updates for my Video card, tells me there is a new update. but when I press the green download button, it also tells me I have no internet connection... I searched under my allowed programs & apps in my firewall settings and its squeaky clean... I then did a system restore and used a restore point from 2 days ago when I know for a fact everything was running great, I still get same results. So that's it fellas. anyone have any idea what the hell is going on here? Thank you all as always for taking this time to read my problems.

    A few others I know as well as me had this same problem last night. What we did was reboot and then opened steam and steam opened right up.

    Depending on how many games you have, have you considered un-installing steam and re-install steam. I know it's a big PITA, but it might work.

    Just to clarify, are you using steam on the desktop? I've not heard of a steam app and just checking the MS store I see that there is. I personally just use steam in desktop mode.
