How To Edit Your Windows 7/Vista Games Explorer

In Windows Vista there is a build-in Games explorer where you can find all games currently installed on your computer. But sadly Microsoft has not included a feature where we can add/remove or edit/modify itโ€™s content and improve the looks and overall functionality. Vista Game Explorer Editor is a free program that allows you to do just that.

You will only find few games listed in the explorer, but with this tool you can add/remove any game of your choice(including Steam games). When you add a game, it will xdownload the box art from the Internet automatically. ๐Ÿ™‚

Note: This should also work with Windows 7.

When you run this tool for the first time, there is a good chance that you will see the following message,

no games in the list message

the developer has written a solution for this problem here.

Below is an example of Games Explorer before and after using VGEE to modify/organize games.

After

Looks great, right? Features Include:

  • Ability to choose Boxart Image Search provider (AllGame.com or Google)
  • Support for Steam games
  • Better support for game Home page
  • Improved “Repair” functionality
  • Works in Windows 7.

Enjoy!
