  1. Right clicking in the desktop shortcut… and I see no “web document” tab at all. I see security, details, previous versions, general, shortcut, and compatability. There is no such tab. What URL am I copying exactly? Just the shortcut URL?

    1. Try to add directly to Steam as a non-steam game.

  2. Using all the steps you mentioned worked for me using an XBOX controller!

    Thanks so much!

  3. I have a stadia controller and I had to add the executable directly into steam instead of the ubisoft connect shortcut to get this to work.

    1. Yep. That can work too. Sorry for missing it out in the post. Thanks anyways, the post is updated now.
