No, I mean the games explorer.
The "Games" button in the Start menu brings up a window with information about your games, requirements, website links etc.
Most new games install their shorcuts to here and no longer create start menu shortcuts.
In Vista you could edit these shortcuts to change launch options. In 7 you can't change anything, so if, for example, the DX10 version of a game crashes but it is the default, you have to right click the shortcut and tell it to run the DX9 version every time. If this option isn't available on the default shortcut you have to manually add another shortcut which won't have any of the other options that are supposed to be there. In Vista you could just edit the existing shortcut to run the DX9 exe by default.
