Looking to add a second "Games" folder to my Start Menu

Looking to add a second "Games" folder to my Start Menu, not the user pinned list. Want to add a new Start Menu folder "Games(2)" to hold all of the games rarely accessed.

I have been through the registry ...\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced,
and have been through the folder ...\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer.

I am attempting to create a new Registry DWORD Value for "...\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowMyGames2" and then link this entry to a new folder.
I have searched through Windows and online but not found anything offering how these Registry entries link to the actual folders.

If anyone can help or give a new direction that might work please help.

Windows 7 x64 SP1

  1. Click "Start", type "Shell:Start Menu" into the "Search" box, and hit <Enter>

    In Explorer window that appears, go into the "Programs" folder.

    Any folders or shortcuts you create in this folder will appear in the "Start -> All Programs" menu.
  2. wrong part of Start Menu.
