Step 2: On the next Create a Group page, enter your preferred group name, followed by an abbreviation, group link and click on the button beside Public Group if you want it to be available to everyone else on Steam. Anyone on Steam can join public groups and contribute to them. If you want to keep your group private, leave the box unchecked.

Once all the entries have been made and you’ve checked their availability via the Check Availability button for the first three entries, click on the Create button.
