This icon is now stuck in the folder and I cant do anything with it (either launch the game with it or delete it)
The game does work when launched from the Steam client but I'm now left with this unsightly and useless icon which I would like to remove.
I have tried using the, "Delete", option from the "Organise" menu without success and the icon itself does not have a right-click menu. In addition I have also had a tentative look in the Registry but didn't alter anything as I could only see keys for my other two games.
Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Hi David, have you tried deleting the game from this location:
username is obviously your username, you'll have to find out the name of the file where it is kept, but you could click through all the files and see which one comes up with the game that doesn't work via the icon, after you've deleted the file directory, restart and see if the game is still there
