How to redeem keys on the Steam Platform

Like if this guide is helpful

Welcome To Our Guide.


This guide will show you how to redeem game keys for the Steam platform.

Steam delivers a range of games straight to a computer's desktop. It's services include automatic updates (no more need to search out and apply those annoying game patches & updates), lists of games, posters, a neat launcher client that will soon become the hub of your PC gaming experience.  It is the place to redeem your discounted K eyNinja Steam keys and download the game(s) you have purchased.

Note: If you have purchased a key for a different platform, such as Origin or Uplay, then this is the incorrect guide.  We will be creating guides for other platforms in the coming days and will link them here.

OK, let's get started...

Installing the Steam Client.

If you already have Steam you can skip this section.

If you do not already have the Steam client, you will need to download and install it.
Head over to the Steam website and download the installer. The link is in the image below.

 Steam is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, however not all games are.  If a game is compatible with Mac or Linux, it will say so in the listing description.
If you do not already have the Steam client, you will need to download and install it.  The link is in the image above.

Next, enter the key we sent you, in the "Product Code" text box.

Then click the "NEXT >" button.

You will be shown a  "Activation Successful" window, click "FINISH"

Next you may be prompted to install the game, just follow the instructions and let the game download and install.  Once finished, start the game and begin playing.

If you are not prompted to download the game, then you will need to initiate the download manually.

To do this, click "LIBRARY" located  in the top left area of the client, then click the game from the list.

After switching to your library, click on the game you want to install and then click the install button.

Download & Install

When you click the install button a new window will open like this one >>

Choose your options, then click "NEXT"

Steam will allocate the disk space, begin the download and install the game automatically for you.

Enjoy The Game!

That is it.  Once the game has downloaded and installed, either start the game from your Steam library by clicking the "Play" button or by double clicking the game icon on your desktop.

Enjoy The Game!
