You can change your account name, but NOT your login name.

There are two ways to do it:

 

1. Go to your friend's list, and go up to your picture/username. Click the upside down triangle and on the dropdown list, click "Change Profile Name...". On the next screen you can modify it how you wish and then click OK to save the changes.

 

2. In the main Steam window, go to the "Friends" tab at the top, and at the bottom will be the button "Change Profile Name...". Follow the same steps as above.

Anyone ever tried to email Steam to change login name?

I wonder if they can do that.

Your SteamID and Steam Account Name can not be changed, even by Steam Support staff members. Your Steam Community ID can be changed at any time in your Steam Community settings, under "Edit my SteamID page".

You can change your username but not login.

When you click friends tab in friends you will see settings, click the settings and there you should see profile name box.

You go to settings and do it from there. If you want to change the name you login with, you can't.
