I installed steam using playonmac but when I start it I get a black screen like this

I'm on macos big sur and using a macbook air laptop. Is there any fix for this?

Click "View" then click "Small Mode" and you should see your games, you can't buy games from there, so you'll have to use regular steam to get games, then download them using small mode on playonmac steam. I hope this helps you.

Hello! How do use regular steam to get windows games and then download them using small mode? I try to download games via Safari, but I got the message that this game only be downloaded using Steam on Windows. Thanks in advance.
