Windows 7 Ultimate Game Shortcuts

In my start menu under the games, the icons are not there for each game, and when i click on them... it doesn't work, i think the shortcuts are wrong.

How do i fix this?

Thanks,

Cohen

Right click on the games link to open in a window. Right click a game and select Remove From List. Go to the games directory and creat a shortcut to the game's .exe and cut/paste that into the Games folder.

I couldn't tell you, because I have moved it to a diffent location on my system. If you have the Games link displayed on the right side of the Start Menu, just right click it and select Open from the context menu.

In the start menu - that is only for saved games, not the actually links.... or exe files.

I'm not sure that I understand what you are saying. Assuming that you are referring to the Games link displayed when you have enabled it with the options shown with the customize button on the Start Menu tab of Taskbar and Start Menu Properties, the shortcuts shown are simply shorcuts to the .exes in the game's folders. Saved games are usually accessed within the game's interface.
