Skipping an "update"

I was going to uninstall steam and I moved the steamapps folder, but before I did that, steam started up and was working, so I moved the garrysmod folder into common. When I loaded steam and clicked the install button, I thought it would instantly be done because I have the game files, but I had made a mistake, I had moved the garrysmod folder into the steamapps folder and not into common, so steam was actually trying to install the game, so I exited steam and moved the folder, but Steam is still trying to install Gmod, so how can I stop it?

The only way you’re going to skip updating is if you play Garry’s Mod in offline mode until the next update comes out which could be anywhere from a few weeks to a whole year depending on if there’s anything short term that needs to be done. The update’s not even that bad, there’s more fixes this time around than anything.

Now please, move these to the Help and Support section or just stop posting, you’re flooding this section.
