Installing Program Files - Issue

Hey guys,
Recently, whenever i install a program such as a game i have been having problems because after the program is installed it doesnt show up in the start menu programs, and then i have to explore and find it in the programs file folder. usually when i install a program it automatically is put in the start menu programs folder so i dont know whats going on. Example: I installed Far Cry 2 the other day but when i hit the start button and go to programs there is no file called ubisoft even though the directory it supposedly installed to was C:/Program Files/Ubisoft. So then i have to explore and the folder magically appears when i am exploring but its not in the start menu. If you have any idea what im talking about or know the answer that would be great. Thanks.

  1. Check your 'games' explorer under the start button. Farcry should be there. Don't know why Farcry 2 doesn't install with a start menu option. Are you sure it isn't just that one game doing that?
  2. Most newer games will have a shortcut in the Games explorer as notherdude said... but not necessarily a menu shortcut. This is to help cut down on the clutter created by installing a lot of individual programs.
