Easy way to add / manage Games Explorer
I'm new to Vista. I have Vista Ultimate SP2 64 bit and noticed that
there is the Games Explorer. However, it does not seem to be "easy"
to add or manage the games listed in it.

Can anyone recommend how to do this?

For "Designed for Vista" games, they'll be automatically installed in
the Game Explorer. Many newer games are falling into this category.
For those who dont auto listed, you just drag their executables or
shortcuts into the game explorer.
u'll love it once u have got used to it.

True, the drag "option" will work but it does not let you enter the
additional infos.

Re: Easy way to add / manage Games Explorer

you will not be able to enter additional info like "recommended rating"
and "ESRB rating" thru the game explorer.
Actually, to edit that kindof info would be cumbersome to do it
manually. (You have to compose an xml doc, and then write a simple
installer.)

However, if u just wanna add some related shortcut on top of of it,
just click "play->customize"
