Windows 7: Games off the Orb Menu

Games off the Orb Menu

Is there a way to change the icons on this menu? The icons for BS5 & Shanghai: 2nd Dynasty are not showing correctly for some reason, Google Pacman actually goes to a HTML page to play & Popcap Game Collection is actually a shortcut to a folder full of game shortcuts.

I know how to edit the names of games in this menu by going through the registry, but I cannot figure out
how to change the icons.

Hi CJW .... if you right click on the game icon is there a properties option at the bottom of the context menu ?

If so, click on it . It should open in the shortcut tab. Is there a change icon button ? Can you post a screenshot of the shortcut tab of the programs properties ?

No Properties button on BS5, Google Pacman or Popcap Game Collection. I did get the correct icon showing on Shanghai; I just opened the Games folder, R-clicked & removed shortcut & dragged a new one to the folder. But didn't work for the others.
