Default Games explorer

Would it be ok to just delete this folder? I hate it, and the shortcuts are messing up older games, and also you can't add dev strings to the target.

On rFactor it won't load up because I keep "missing .mas" files, but regular shortcut it works fine.
On LOTR Battle for Middle Earth, I get a an exception handle error.
Diablo II just won't load period.
Can't use Company of Heroes with dev string.
Same for Medieval Total war II

WIll it mess anything up if I delete it?

Default Re: Games explorer

Because it puts them there when the game is installed. I have to manually create a shortcut then drag it over.
