i think that must be the reason there must be something extra you have to do. I found after doing this anyway, the context menu didn't change.

???..., i think it works for games that are non GFWL like for example Blur(2010).
just give it a try
thanks for the explanation Rjck. I'll give it a try later

Yep, for me this only worked for games I manually added. I can confirm this tutorial does not work with any gfw game automatically added by an installer.

there is an easier way............
Just D&D the game shortcut from the start menu to the Game Explorer window or menu.
I had to be careful where I dropped it b/c it didn't seem to want to sort by name.
U can only HIDE the pre-installed games - I did the internet ones as I never use them.
U can remove any that u D&D to the menu. Do this by rt clk the item.
If u use the MENU instead of the LINK, as I do, u have to rt clk GAMES and OPEN it to get the window.
U can't hide or remove or rename from the menu.

This tutorial has NOTHING to do with customizing Games Explorer context menu. I want to add "Open file location" option to all games and remove "Pin to taskbar"/"Pin to start menu" context menu options. This tutorial has absolute N-O-T-H-I-N-G related to that, to actually customizing the context menu. It just tells how to add commands to games of your choice.

That's because what you want is for the context menu for all folders, and is not related to the context menu of specific game tiles in the Games Explorer folder that this tutorial is for instead.


You could use the tutorials below to remove the items you want instead, but it will remove them from all files and folders.
