    games not appearing in start menu after install

    Ok so when I go and install a new game it doesn't come up in the start menu. Other programs I install show up in there. It's not a big deal just kinda annoying.

    some games when you install them are set to put the exe or icon to run them in the games section of vista, this is perfectly normal, you can put it in the start menu by going to program files and finding the application icon and dragging it to start menu.

    hope this helps

    My games install in the games area. I actually like this. Saves me moving them.
