Maybe because I would prefer to have a shortcut to game's configuration executable rather go and search for it in game folder, hm? But of course if all game configurations, manuals, readmes and uninstall shortcuts are "garbage" to you, well...

Unfortunately, the feature I use most often, is "Open file location" - which quickly brings me to game folder.... NOT. Instead, it brings me to shitty game explorer now. And no, it doesn't have all the features I need. I wish. But I see where you're coming from.

LIES. Many pre-Vista games have their shortcuts put in "Games" instead of creating their normal start menu shortcut structure. Looks like Game Explorer, or whatever shit Windows 7 uses, fetches information from internet and redirects game shortcuts as soon as it detects "a game".
Thanks everyone for your replies, I'll see what I can do with the info you gave me.
