Sometimes Mac's accessibility permissions becomes corrupted, and weird things start to happen.

For example, Steam applications will complain that accessibility permissions are required, even though they apparently are already granted.

To fix this, reset the accessibility permissions cache:

  1. Launch Terminal.app
  2. Enter tccutil reset Accessibility
  3. Quit Terminal
  4. Launch System Preferences
  5. Select Security & Privacy
  6. Select the Privacy tab
  7. Unlock the console.
  8. Add the appropriate application (e.g. /Applications/Steam.app).
