How To Enable Or Disable Steam Overlay For One Particular Game

Steam is an online gaming platform where its users can also play games and chat with their friends. There is a Steam feature called Steam overlay, when this feature is enabled you can chat with your friends and browse or use other steam features without opening its launcher. But sometimes enabling the overlay feature may cause a crash in the game so some users prefer to keep it disabled. Also disabling the feature has some losses like you cannot take screenshots, cannot use a built-in browser, etc. So enabling or disabling this feature depends on your actions or activities in the app. If you want to enable or disable this feature for a single game that is also possible.
