Games Explorer

Hi guys

I'v just installed Windows 7 Professional as i got it for 11:50 which seems reasonable for what should have been a service pack for Vista lol. Its quite good but they have totally messed up the games explorer.

In Vista you could right click and customize a shortcut, is there any way of doing that in the Windows 7 games explorer and if not then is there a way of installing the Vista games explorer into Windows 7.

Cheers

hi AllMac

Id already looked at those threads and hoped there was a better way of doing it. In vista i used Steam Assistance to add all my games then right clicked on them in games explorer and changed the target paths.

This allowed me to add every single piece of info i wanted and to have them launch normally but sadly as they have taken away the customize option i now cant do this.
