Add Steam Overlay to MineCraft 1.7

To add MineCraft to your Steam library with the new launcher you need to do an extra step instead of just adding Minecraft.exe to Steam. With the new launcher, minecraft actually launches with the exe javaw.exe.

So Go to Program Files and find javaw.exe under Java\jre7\bin
Add it to Steam
Right click on javaw on Steam library list and go to Properties
Add this for Target:
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\Minecraft.exe" 
That is where i store my Minecraft.exe
If you stored it in a different place you would change the location to "C:\WHATEVER\Minecraft.exe"
