Steam is a community that brings users together and allows them to communicate with one another. The community is more of an online discussion and forum-based site where anyone can start a thread asking for clarification on questions.
When a user starts a thread, it is known as a discussion. Other users can interact with your thread by liking and commenting with the hope of helping your query. You should be aware that you can not start a discussion on Steam if you are not a registered user yet.
Once you start a discussion on Steam, you might want to delete it for several reasons. However some users might have difficulty doing this, but I will show you how to do it easily in this article. The whole process should not take more than a minute.

Can You Delete a Discussion on Steam?
If you started the thread, you could delete it at any point. However, you might be unable to do so at some time. When your thread or discussion gets a minimum of seven engagements or replies, you won’t be able to delete it any longer.
On the other hand, if you started the discussion and have not gotten up to seven replies on it yet, you can delete it. In the subsequent subheading, I will show you a step-by-step guide to deleting your discussion on Steam.

Here, I will show you a step-by-step process to delete a discussion you have started on Steam. It is easy, and you should understand it after reading. Let’s get right into it.
1. Log in to your Steam Account
Since you will be working on your steam account, you must log in first. If you are having any difficulty logging in, you can either request a new password or reach out to support via email.
2. Go to discussions
As soon as you log in to your account, visit your profile and look for your discussions. You will find a page where all your past posts, threads, and discussions are saved. When you find the option, click it.
3. Find the thread and delete
Find the discussion you want to delete and tap its menu option. You will see a command to delete the thread. However, you might not find this option if your post has already gotten up to seven replies. If it is not up to seven replies, you will find the delete option, and you will be able to delete it.
How Do I Delete If My Thread Has Exceeded Seven Replies?
If you are a regular user of Steam, you will know that once you get a reply to your discussion, you will receive a notification sent to your email. When you receive excessive responses, you should expect loads and emails, which can be very annoying.
When this happens, the only resort is to delete the thread or discussion, which brings many replies. However, if you have already exceeded seven replies on the post, this might no longer be possible. The only way to stop receiving notifications from a post is to unsubscribe from Steam.
How Do I Delete All Steam Posts?
If, at any point in time, you wish to delete all the posts in your Steam account, there is a way to go about it. This is quite different from deleting a single post. All the posts and discussions on your account will be deleted and irreversible in this mode.
To delete all posts on your Steam account, go straight to deletion mode. You will find this mode in your steam account section. Then, you click on “start deleting.” You will be asked to confirm if you want to delete it. If you wish to proceed, select YES.
Kindly note that you can not recover any post you delete on your Steam account. Once the deletion process begins, you can not stop it till it is finished. Likewise, you can not access the posts, threads, and discussions you have deleted. The process is entirely irreversible.
