Latest Steam Deck Update Tweaks Keyboard Position

This update may not be as large as the mega update launched earlier this month, but there are a few handy fixes being implemented. 

Most notably, the on-screen keyboard now remembers its position. I know, I know. It’s a small fix for sure, but it’s a useful one nonetheless. 

You can now also set the initial location of the keyboard while in desktop mode. That’s pretty neat. 

Elsewhere the update includes fixes for controllers, desktop mode, and help for users with “tens of thousands” of games in their arsenal.
