Steam Beta Allows Custom Installation Locations

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has instructions distilled from a reddit post on how Steam users can finally select custom locations for their game installations. This is currently only available in the Steam beta and requires a little configuring, but the post includes instructions on how to opt in to the beta as well as on how to enable this new functionality. Thanks nin.

I swear you used to be able to do this many years ago and they quietly removed that ability for some unknown reason. I have a friend who remembers the same thing, too, but everyone is acting like it was never there.
