How to Enable Steam’s Built-in FPS Counter in PC Games

If you are a hardcore gamer like me, you might be well aware of Steam. Steam is a video game digital distribution service by Valve. It was launched as a software client way back in 2003 and provided automatic updates to their games.

The platform has expanded, and it now includes games from third-party publishers. The PC gamers you watch on YouTube playing PUBG Mobile played the games via Steam. Also, Counter-Strike Global Offensive is available as free to play on Steam.

One of the Steam client’s great features is displaying the game’s frame per second (FPS). If enabled, the client automatically displays your frames per second while playing PC games. That means that if you use Steam to play games, you don’t need to rely on any third-party application to view the FPS.
