Windows 7: Manually Adding Games to GameExplorer

Manually Adding Games to GameExplorer

Well I tried it and surprisingly, with Bioshock, it went well. Just by creating strings in the registry like the other ones already registered on GameExplorer. There is just one little problem though. GameExplorer acts as though the game isn't there. I can't click it. Left or right click does absolutely nothing and neither does clicking on the links on the bottom to go to developer's websites. I can select is however. (Highlight it). What am I missing? Extra bit of registry strings?

Open Games Explorer from the Start Menu.

Drag a shortcut to your game into the folder.

If it's compatible you should get a shortcut created in the Games Explorer folder.

I haven't tried this so I don't know if it works.

Why not just put a shortcut in a "Games" folder in your Start Menu?

Stop Games folder from adding games
Hey guys, is it possible to make the "Games" folder behave like an ordinary folder? I.e. to just keep the games I enabled in it (Solitaire, Freecell, Spider, etc), and not attempt to add other games to it? For example if I install Bejewelled I will also get a shortcut to Bejewelled in my Games...
