First off open the steam folder in your c/drive
Once there find the folder called steamapps
then open the common folder
then open 2009 folder
Then right click fm2009 icon and select create shortcut.
Drop that to your desktop.
Once all this is done you will not need to load up steam every time you play the game.
This has been done so many times today but with all the moaning today it drops off this page so quickly so thought i would repost.
Miles any chance you can make a sticky with the instuctions so we don't get hundreds of posts asking the same question cheers.
