Windows 7: change game genre in GEF

change game genre in GEF

How can I change game's genre in the Games Explorer Folder? I've tried right-click but nothing happens. I've sorted my games by genre and some of them have the genre "unspecified".

There are a few options found within the Games Explorer which should allow you to tell it to contact Microsoft for information regarding the games in the list. This should update the genre, etc.

I believe the option "Download Art & Information About Games" should update the information in that list.

If that doesn't work for you, you could try this link but I haven't tested it:
