How do I cancel downloads in Steam?

10 posts in this topic

I found out that I couldn't run Alien Swarm so I went to cancel the download, only I couldn't figure out how. I can pause it and tried to delete the content, but that causes the program to crash.

Try letting it install then uninstalling it.

Yeah, the only thing you can do is pause them or just wait for them to finish so you can delete them. starfoxa; I put Steam on my partitioned drive and it started a bunch of downloads that I can't get rid of.

That's why I don't ever let it sign in for me.

You pause the download and delete local content, that's how it's done. If that causes Steam to crash I dunno what to tell you.

delete clientregistry.blob in program files\steam and steamapps\common\alien swarm (the whole folder) if it isn't working through Steam

I always just pause and delete the local content, but if that's not working for you, I don't know what would work.
