Hey guys, not sure the technical term here but...
I have all my games installed on a separate HDD, they all run fine, but..I can't search off my start menu for anything in that Hard Drive.
How do I make it visible ?

NOTE using Windows 8.

It should work the same as in Win7. Type 'Control Panel' into search then look under 'Indexing Options', just add the drive from there. Note that if it is a USB drive, rather than an ATA-installed second drive then it may not be available.

OldGeezer, I did that and let it index everything, still when I search it doesn't show up my .exe files (It's my HDD that I store all my games.)

Much easier to find files with this,

Indexing can slow your system down. Not recommended.
