Windows 7: game locations in the start menu

29 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
game locations in the start menu

I've installed a couple of games and they are in different spots in the start menu.
Some are in the "games" folder, some are in the "microsoft games" folder and some have there own folder. Is there a way during install to change this? If not how can I arrange them so they are all in the "Games" folder?

Will moving them break any shortcuts made during install?

It shouldnt break the shortcuts, since the shortcut points to the actual directory the game is located in :)
