Renaming Games entries?

Posted: 12-28-2008, 03:39 AM
I have a number of Games in my Games folder, and I would like to rename some
of them. Surprisingly, right-clicking on these entries doesn't give me a
rename option.

Any ideas?

You should use 'Vista Game Explorer Editor'
(http://ryzza007.googlepages.com/vgee), it has what you are looking for
and more!

If you would rather do this in the registry, navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\GameUX.
Now browse through the entries in here, find the one(s) you wish to
change, and edit the respective "Title" values.

I didn't see the same key string under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, so I assume
that these changes are global on your computer.

Note: Registry hacking can be dangerous, and serious harm can be done
to the operating system on your PC as a result. Make sure to backup
your registry - at a minimum the key/string you are modifying - before
attempting any changes.
