EGS is lacking a screenshot option? You just want to have the game on Steam? You tried to add the game to Steam library but there's an error when you try to launch the game? Not a problem. Here's a tutorial that may help you.

1. Open Epic Games Launcher and head to Library
If you already have the desktop shortcut skip to 4.

2. Press the 3 dots and go to Manage

Important info!

You can rename Epic Games Launcher in Steam propteries to Saints Row 2022 or Saints Row BF or anything you want

If you close the game and you'll see the app is still running in the library you need to manualy close Epic Games Launcher

Just something to add, while I was able to add the game to Steam and launch it with no issue using this guide, I wasn't getting the overlay to work properly at first. If you are having a similar issue, make sure to run Steam as an administrator. Doing the same with EGS may be necessary as well, but Steam was definitely the part holding me back here.
