I would like to rename and delete items that I D&Ded to the start menu Games menu (right panel) of W7.
Rt clk does not list those options. Where can I find these .lnk shortcut files to modify them????????????

I found it - why it is buried I can't imagine but it is here in the registry

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GamesUX\S-1-5-21-.....

the rest of that S- number may be different on your system. Each entry under it is for added games.
It is easy to drag & drop shortcuts into the menu but to get rid of them or edit them you need to do a reg hack.
go figure -
