When you say Steam, are you talking about Steam VR or Steam Library?

Assuming you have Steam installed, you can access the Steam library from within the HMD through a "dashboard overlay". In the picture below, you can see that there are little circles "steam, vive, desktop...ect" on the "dashboard" that you'll see when you hit the system button. You can select "steam" and it will take you into Steam's VR interface. You can also launch titles from Steam's desktop interface and in most installations, Viveport will actually detect your Steam installations as well allowing you to launch from Viveport.
