How to pin Steam games to the start menu in Windows 10? I will show you in this quick tutorial. Easier, less fancy method: Open steam library. right click on game, choose create desktop shortcut. copy the shortcut to C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs Open start, click all programs. find said game. hit pin to start.

Why the fuck is it this complicated to pin something to the start menu. Every step forward in new OS's is actually a huge leap backwards... The steps in the description also didn't do a thing for me. Gotta love Windows 10.

Found another way while watching this, it won't give you live tiles though Go to c:/Program Files (x86/x64)/steam/steamapps/game-you-want-to-pin then rightclick the exe and pin to start like you would with any other program

Thank you so much for the start menu location in the description! That's all I need to know, but mot of the internet seems to be scratching their heads as to where it is. Even the file explorer can't find it unless you hold its hand all the way there. C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

What about non steam games added as steam games?
Adeel Rehman (2 years ago)
+Contrum I figured it out. I used an app called wintiler, and it can use the start menu to launch web protocols.

That won't work because it grabs your games from your account, and you're just adding a shortcut through steam rather than it being tied to your account.

To bad you need to have your profile set to public for this, right?
WG (3 years ago)
correct, but you can set it back to private after you are done adding games to the start menu.

Jump lists are way better; no need for 3rd party apps, can launch games straight from the start menu without having steam open(not possible with silly Windows Store apps) and functions the same as it did in Windows 7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03Q-MtbgODo

why do you have barbie dreamhouse party

followed word for word, but did not work

every time i click the tile that was set up using this program, it opens steam tiles. How can I change that? It's annoying that everytime i open a game from the start menu it also opens steam tiles.

nice video, but 0 help, it still don't work,,,

Hey, do you know if the recently played games still appear when you right click on the Steam icon in your Taskbar? Because they no longer appear for me and that was one of my main methods of launching games.
Scipo049 (3 years ago)
+WhisperingGamer You're a lifesaver, I thought Windows 10 removed the option to run games from the taskbar forever.
BOOTxClan (3 years ago)
+WhisperingGamer Cheers, man! I couldn't find this anywhere else. Thanks so much!
WG (3 years ago)
+BOOTxClan here is how it will work, go into the steam client go to Steam Settings > go to Interface tab > set taskbar preference. Uncheck a few that you don't want, then your games will have space in the 'right click' jump list. I might make a video showcasing how to do it step by step.

+WhisperingGamer Google/Reddit sent me to your video as the top 2 search results. Nice skin by the way and thanks for the link to the program.

I wasn't close enough to my mic in this vid so the quality is sh*t (in most ppls opinion) Also, hive mind...if ppls see many downvotes they downvote as well. thx for asking :)
Robert R (3 years ago)
It's somewhat over complicated but it's interesting to see another way to do it. Personally I just find the game, properties, browse files, and then find the exe which launches the game/launcher.
