Windows 7: Games Explorer Game Type

Games Explorer Game Type

Is there a way to change the game type (RPG, MMO, etc.) for a game that I added to the Games Explorer via drag-and-drop? Barring that, is there a way to change "Unspecified" to some other wording? I don't mind the other missing details after dragging and dropping a game, but I do have it set up so that the games are grouped by type, and I hate seeing that big old ugly "Unspecified" there.

When you drag-n-dropped the game, did you drag-n-drop the executable file?

That's the easiest way to do it. If not, try that and see if this helps.

Thanks for the advice. Yes, I did try dragging the game's actual executable and it shows up as "Unspecified."

I looked at the registry key for the Games Explorer shortcut to the game, in hopes that I could find the information there and change it, but if it's there, it's not obvious.
