Try ending the steam process and relaunching it. I had that issue too. Or restarting your computer should help and might be better. Also be sure you're launching Steam from the correct place i.e. if you used -no-dwwrite on the desktop shortcut, launch Steam from the desktop.

That doesn't work when steam is launched via it's own service. It must be launched from the shortcut that you've made in order for that parameter to go through.

I'm having this problem as well... the command is -no-dwrite, correct? Exactly as written? It used to work like years ago, but after an update it broke.

@5, maybe I'm being too paranoid, but asking people to remote into your machine for something like this is imho a bad idea. Get the wrong person to do it and they will take your username and password, and who knows what else. I really don't like the idea of strangers remoting into my machine personally. I've seen too many bad things happen when people have access to passwords.

@6 so far as I know that's right. What kinds of things have you tried to get it to display the alternate interface?
Have you, as a test, tried killing steam.exe in task manager and relaunching it using your -no-dwrite shortcut? If that fixes it, then check to see if Steam is starting with Windows, and if so, disallow that.
I also see a steam client service, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I never had to touch it, so I kinda doubt that has an effect on this.
