  3. How do you cancel/remove a steam download?

Hi there. I accidently started downloading a game I didn't intend to from steam, but can't figure out how to make the download stop. I can pause it, but when I click on the x button it says that an update is needed. Any help?

The game in question is Skyrim if it helps.

Just pause it. I've had Left 4 Dead 2 paused for 2 years.

Can I remove it from the queue though?

Pause then delete local content via the right click menu.
