Windows 7: "Games" Folder? Windows 7 Beta- help me recall

"Games" Folder? Windows 7 Beta- help me recall

When the Windows 7 Beta had first come out, I downloaded it right away. I installed some games and when I went to play them, I think there was a folder that automatically put my games in to it.

ei: When I installed CoH, it was put in to a folder that I would access from the Start Menu.

Am I just trying to get myself to remember things or was this actually a feature that was removed?

They should be in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files, depending if they are 32 or 64 bit games. Yes most software will have a folder in Start/All Programs from which you can access the .exe file for it.

I don't think that's what he meant

tim, are you talking about the Games Explorer? It should be presented as a big button on the right hand side of your start menu called "Games"

Yep that's it! It wasn't set to the start menu by default but now I have moved it there. Thanks.
