GetHuman4631362's Recover Account issue with Steam Software from April 2020

Help with my Steam Software issue
The issue in GetHuman4631362's own words
It's pretty specific and a bit of a long story. Basically, years ago I had a steam account with quite a few games on it. However, I once changed the password and then forgot that I changed the password, and I thought that it was hacked and so I locked the account. I then realized that I had changed the account and tried to get it back at the time but I wasn't sure how, and ended up just creating a new one (gabrielthecoolta*). I recently remembered the account and found out that it still existed (I looked at one of my steam friend's friend list and found it) and I was hoping that it would be possible to get it back. I can give identification if needed, though it does include my name kind of (ggerin which stands for Gabriel Gerin). I'm pretty sure I used my school e-mail for this account (*****@***.com) but I'll be linking my personal e-mail, though if needed you can contact my school e-mail

GetHuman4631362 did not yet indicate what Steam Software should do to make this right.

How GetHuman4631362 fixed the problem
So it turns out that I could actually just do the recover account thing, my account was actually connected to my personal email so it was actually really easy.
