Default Re: Game Explorer

After getting used to Windows 7 for a bit and tweaking it the way I'm wanting it, I've found that for me the Games Explorer is pretty worthless. I don't care about the advertising info, I already know all that stuff. It's just fluff to me. I don't like for one, that the game has to be in sync with Microsoft to even get in there and two, the shortcut cannot be edited. Like for instance if you want to put a command line entry after the game location like "+disconnect" in Doom 3 and Quake 4 to get rid of game entry videos.

I have made my own game shortcut folder where I put in and edit all my game shortcuts till my heart's content. Put it in the Quick Launch Toolbar and I now have something that is functional to me.
