I know how to add a shortcut to a game in the Games Folder. But that shortcut only shows up in My Games Folder, not in the Games Folder of others accounts.

Until now, I'm loggin with each account on my computer and adding games shortcuts manually. :\

Tks!

You should be able to add the shortcut in this folder:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games

If you want to add a start menu shortcut for all users then add them here and they will shaow on all accounts.

C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

Didn't work! :'(

If I place a shortcut at "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games"
or at "C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games", all I get is a new shortcut in Start Menu->All Programs->Games! But that does not show up in Start Menu->Games! :(

I think I was miss undestood! I'm not talking about the regular Games folder that appears as a submenu in "All Programs". I'm talking about the Games Folder that is directly accessed under Start Menu. Got it? :)

I think I've found the actual name of that folder: Games Explorer!

Tks!

Thanks for the update...

yeah, we didn't realize you meant that games folder, since it's not enabled by default.
