Doing this with Steam games is always hit and miss, it depends on the game. If you still want to try, go ask Steam Support. And don't make a new topic just because your previous one wasn't answered.

It wont get the info at this stage.

You've done everything correct, but havent finished it all up yet.

To get box art,all the information, and rename the shortcut, theres still more to do.

Follow this tutorial:
Games Explorer Folder - Add Games To

Skip the part about adding the shortcut to the Games Explorer. you've already done that (the steam icon)

Once you done this, youll have all the info, and box art (or you can make your own and replace the one that downloaded)
