Steam will run but once I sign in the sign on screen comes back

Complete newbie. Never used linux before.

I cannot run steam. I am running newest Linux Mint cinnamon. When I open steam the sign in box comes up, then after a few seconds it comes up again. I am sure that is the correct username and pass word. Have no idea what the problem is. Please help!

DI do not understand any of that and none of it worked. I need a simple walkthru to get this working.
