Finding people on steam
I tried to find my friend's account on steam, but when I looked it up, it said that the name didn't exists; even though he gave me his accout name. What do I do?

He needs to give you his profile name, not his account name.

If you have played together, simply select View/Players from the top left on steam.

Just go to your profile, right click on the page, "copy page address" and send this link to them via chat/IM/email.

Get her to send you the URL address link to her account. User name and email will not find her as that's completely different from a profile name or URL.

I tried to find my cousin on steam and even when I had his URL, and vice versa, we could not find each other. We even played a game together after we found each other in the in-game multi-player and still cannot find each other on Steam. Players (under the View tab) and the Recently Played With list don't bring up the profiles either. I know our privacy settings are correct, so what am I missing?

if you still need help, get him to write out the username, copy it, paste it into google with also steam, example - (''Username'' Steam) then click into that link, and click add

Another thing to do is have them emai you their profile URL from the client. That was you can view their steam name or ID.
