Windows 7: Windows Game Explorer

Windows Game Explorer

Not sure if this is the right section. Anyways, Does anyone know where I can change the Games Explorer link in the start menu to that lets say of a Folder? or Library instead of it's usual Game Explorer self?

Reason is Game Explorer sucks, I made a library and called it games and just pinned it to the start menu, there it has all my shortcuts for my games, BUT it's on the left side of the start menu, I thought I could enable the Game Explorer Link on the Start Menu if I could link it to a folder. Just so it doesnt take space on the left.

You could use the Favourites, Re-name it Games and, through properties, change its location (path) to point to your new Games folder, wherever it may be.

Thanks, while favorites isnt possible cause it only turns into Menu which I wanted a Link, I used the TV Recording one, since even if I do record I wont ever use that folder. Such a workaround was so easy but I was fighting so hard to just remove it, I forgot I could do that. Frustration doesn't help. So thank you so much.

Favourites was the first one I glimpsed that I knew could be used!!

Glad to have helped.

Lol, I think I broke it, I sent the link to a library instead of the actual Folder now I can't change any setting in it, and it doesn't load the library nor can I change it to load the library.

Ooops!

I see the folder you can change it to still has e.g Video library at the top.

it fixed itself by disabling and enabling it (dont ask), the nasty description of Watch TV Programs You've Recorded is still there. Time to find a way to edit that.

I'll leave that for another time, thanks for the help. I'm through with thinking for today. I'll make sure to click fast so the Recorded TV description doesn't come up.
