I found myself in kind of a big problem today as I tried logging on Steam on another computer.

The usual verification code popped up -- no problem -- the thing is that I only have access to the email address linked to my steam account from my own PC at home (I am currently using a yahoo mail address and intend to change to a gmail address).

Is there a way to change the email address that my Steam account is linked to?

    I hope that you cannot change your email without logging in...

You can change your contact email address via the steam client. Menubar -> Steam -> Settings -> Change Contact Email Address.

For security reasons you will need to log in to steam and have access to the old email address.

Red freehand circles to show the button.

  • Just a heads up: IIRC you won't be able to use Steam trading and the marketplace for a few days after changing your email.

You can only change your Steam email account while logged in.

However, it is possible to access Yahoo mail from any computer using the web interface at https://mail.yahoo.com/. I hope you remember your Yahoo mail password!
