If you have purchased GameMaker from the Steam platform, you can attach your Steam account to the GameMaker Account system. This is done from the Link / Unlink Steam card, by clicking the Link button
Clicking this link will open a new window where you will be requested to sign into Steam and confirm that the account is to be linked to YoYo Games. Once you have confirmed that it can be linked, you should see the following message confirming that your Steam account is now linked:
Please note your Steam profile has to be public in order for the Steam Account to be found. (Remember to disable any web extensions that block certain pages.)
