Hi RezBec.
You'll need to specify as to where you are seeing all these unwanted titles. Is it with SteamVR Home or on VivePort?
Someone might be able to help. I know when I used VivePort, having stuff on the list that I had deleted was annoying.

Same here. And it's getting so bad I think after this month I'll cancel my subscription because quite frankly, I CAN'T FIND THE NEW GAMES! Not only that, but do I really need to be reminded daily that I caved in and tried that horrible Olympics VR title once a long time ago? I love Viveport.. but not being able to clean up your library is just too much.

 

I get the idea of subscription titles or others hanging around in your library for say, 10 days or so. Just in case your like, I wish I didn't delete that one game..what was it called? But after 10 days, come on.. clean this mess up.

 

P.s. The simple solution would be to allow us to HIDE items. This would solve all my issues.

In the Viveport app, if you mouse over the app a veritcal line of 3 dots will appear in the lower right corner, click that and you'll see an uninstall option - click it to uninstall.  As for removing it from your library, I'm not sure.

Yes but then you still can't remove the image. I want to remove the image, it's driving me nutts having to scroll through items I uninstalled all the time

Re: How do I remove a app from my library (even uninstall will do)

I'm with you, how do you clean these out?!? no uninstall, no delete, nothing?!?!

The UI for vive and steam is seriously flawed, and why do we need two?!?

 

on top of that, my local "Vive" install has all the games/apps I've installed for it, but the Vive web site only shows three of the apps? Guessing they are the ones I selected through thier site?!?

 

Not even sure what to load when I go into VR now, there are two "dashboard" exe's and I can't even find out what the differences are.

 

It's bad enough that VR is splintered between facebook Rift and steam Vive, we don't need it splintering even more :(

Yes , I was having the same problem and it’s was driving me crazy because I like everything to be organized. I found out something you can do , on top of the screen there’s “filter by” choose “downloaded” and you’ll be able to see only the downloaded games in your library and not the deleted old ones . It’s still gonna be there each time you launch the store but you can filter it every time . It’s better than nothing for now 😅
I hope this was helpful.

Re: How do I remove a app from my library (even uninstall will do)

This is a huge issue for me as well. Each month more old titles I tried are added to viveport with no way of removing them. All the 3-dots give you is 'details'. I don't want details, I want shot of it ffs. If they don't give us a simple way to remove unwanted titles from our list then like others, I am ditching this pi$$ poor service. I struggle to find 5 titles each month as it is without being reminded of older stuff .... just clutter.

These 3 dots will only appear if the title is managed by Viveport. If the title was downloaded or is managed through Steam, you get a Steam icon instead (no 3 dots at all). 

 

Games that I have uninstalled (and in some cases also deliberately hidden from view in Steam) still appear in Viveport! I want them gone. This is so needlessly frustrating. Please address it!

UPDATE: It's now April and nothing improved. Cancelled sub. Sick of this service. Just like the Vive Pro, overpriced crap. Steam VR is plenty good enough.
