i have windows on one harddrive and i use the 2nd Harddrive strictly for installed games like skyrim, battlefeild etc. do i just right click the game folder and delete it that way off my game harddrive? i do not see any of my games under "uninstall a program" in control panel so i cant uninstall them that way. ideas please

You can delete them that way or in the start menu are the games listed there. Alot of times they have an uninstall option there. But you can delete or remove the games any way you can.

yeah i see skyrim in the start menu but theres no uninstall option. it only has the exe to play the game. if i delete it off the harddrive without properly uninstalling it, will it still be in the start menu? because thats what im trying to fix

you can also delete the games folder from the start menu, but it really should be in the control panel

You start with the control pannel and go from there if you want to hunt down every last file you can do that as well just by doing a search of the hdd. Usually the control pannel will get all of it but if there is something lingering then right click it and delete it. If you don't use the control pannel then you will have some files and folders left that have to be rooted out.

Then you can go to Windows explorer and delete the folder and then go to the start menu and delete the start menu shortcut.
