    I think in PowerApps, but I wouldn't say it is safe.

    I don't think there's any need. I don't recall ever having conflicts with AppGuard and Steam.

    In your case, it's enough to run Steam.exe as Guarded as all child processes started within Steam will run as Guarded as well. Not sure if Steam games will work perfectly though.

    Personally I don't run Steam as Guarded as it's highly unlikely to perform any malicious activity and I want maximum compatibility when playing games without any hassle. :)

    Yes. You could choose to include Steam games folder to "User-space". Set setting to High and all signed games will run as guarded.
