IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 8 AND STEAM PLEASE READ

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm having a problem, I installed windows 8 on my SSD and had Steam and all my games installed on my other HDD, I was able to reinstall steam over it and my games all worked fine, but I'm a type of person who likes to be organized and wanted even when I needed to search for those games from my start menu.

They don't show up!
Reinstall it all you say?
I have done so, they don't show up in my searches at all.
Add them to the Index? Done that as well.

Is anyone else experiencing this same problem?

My games from Origin I can search off my start menu for them just fine.

They arent in the registry I assume may be the issue.

Or maybe the file is so large it just is a windows bug.
