Solved: How to Install Steam Without Admin Rights
Hello all. I was wondering if I could somehow install Steam on a MacBook without having admin rights. I just need a way around this. Thanks.

If you own the mac then why do you need to install it without admin rights? What is your objective goal?

I figured it out. Instead of dragging it to the Applications folder, I just dragged it somewhere else and it works fine now.
