SteamDB homepage

SteamDB is a third-party website that aggregates activity and data on the products available through Steam. In order to use this method you will need to click Sign In at the top left of the page and then grant the site access to your Steam account through a Steam confirmation page.

Once your Steam account is associated with SteamDB use the search box at the top of the page to find a title.

Details page

Below the search box should be a green FREE or gray INSTALL button. Clicking this will display a prompt in your browser asking to open the URL in the Steam client. Click Ok/Open/Confirm, depending on the wording of your browser.

NOTE: If the link from SteamDB is no longer active you will end up on the Steam Store page. Some content including free-to-play games, demos, and videos can still be downloaded while others cannot. This depends on how the individual developer or publisher chose to handle these links so your results will vary from game to game.
