Before you start adding as described above, check first to see if you actually have them already installed.

The games should have been installed when XP was installed.
Look in your Start menu. There should be a folder called GAMES.
It will have the various games listed. Click on one to play it.

If you don't see the folder in Start Menu:

Open up My Computer from your desktop.

Next open Drive C.
Click on Windows, then open System32.

Scroll through the list, and find the icons for each of the games.
RIGHT click and either pin to your Start menu OR add a shortcut to your desktop.

If you choose to send to the desktop, create a new folder, rename it to Games, then move the icons to the folder.
