Sea of Thieves – How to Log Into Xbox on Steam Deck

This is for people who are struggling to play the game at all on their Steam Deck because the X-Box/Microsoft login is bugged to ****.

Guide to Log Into Xbox on Steam Deck

How to Get Past This Issue

For anybody experiencing this problem, this was the solution that worked for me. It’s a real pain in the ass and took several attempts, but it did end up working. I will provide the steps I took in the order I remember them.

  • Step 1: Open the game in gaming mode on the deck.
  • Step 2: Hit start game in the opening menu, which should take you into the log in screen for the xbox/microsoft ***.
  • Step 3: Be confronted with a black screen that appears useless.
  • Step 4: Hit the “Steam” button plus the “X” button to bring up the on screen keyboard.
  • Step 5: This is where it gets a little *. Attempt to type out your microsoft e-mail and pull the right trigger or tap the enter key on the keyboard to submit.
  • Step 6: If the keyboard didn’t pop back up after submitting the e-mail, then use the steam+x keys to open it again. Type your password and hit trigger/enter again to submit the password.
  • Step 7: If you are still on the black screen at this point (I was), then just type your e-mail in again and submit one more time.
  • Step 8: Play game (If the previous steps didnt work on the first try then keep trying while also making small changes to the process along the way. I found that hitting the enter button when first opening the keyboard may have done something)!

Good luck fellow Deck Pirates!
