How to disable The Steam Cloud?

The Steam Cloud can be toggled for individual games, or as a global Steam setting for all games. When Steam Cloud functionality of a game is disabled, all progress that would normally be saved via the cloud will only be saved locally on the machine where the progress was made.

Individual games:

  • From the Steam Library, right-click on any game and select Properties....

  • Under the General tab, the Cloud Synchronization setting can be toggled.

All games:

  • From the Steam client Settings window, navigate to the Cloud tab.

  • Cloud can be enabled or disabled using the toggle next to Enable Steam Cloud Sync for applications that support it.
