Depends on the game. A lot you can just 'move them' to a new location and they'll 'pick up where you left off'. (You will need to maintain the directory structure though
ie if it was C:\
program Files (x86)\Game the new location must be the same: D:\
program Files (x86)\Game
If the settings/save games are in the users directory, the game will find them.
As for the shortcuts, you can simply edit the target field of existing shortcut or create a new one to the .exe new location.
However this method it will render any add/remove programs links useless come un-installation time.
Some games however, will
need to be uninstalled/re-installed in order to work properly.
The longer/cleaner method is to uninstall/reinstall all games - but as mentioned it is okay to cut and paste
