Those games smart enough automatically install short cuts there. For most other titles, Vista Help instructs the user to simply drag the .exe icon of the game into this shortcut screen.
However, with Matrix's games there is no such .exe readily available to drag. What I've had to do is to create a shortcut to the "Autorun" icon for each game, rename it eg: Forge of Freedom, drag that over to the Games screen, right click the icon, click edit and then click change icon to give it the appearance of the game it relates too, rather than just leaving it as an ugly "Autorun" icon.
We'll see if we can automatically install shortcuts there in the future, but keep in mind most of our games were made before Vista was released so there would be no way they'd know to do it automatically. I don't entirely understand about there being no .exe icon to drag. Each of our games by default comes with a "Quick Start" icon in the Start Menu folder that links directly to the executable. Only the desktop icon links to the game menu, which is frankly a convenience feature for gamers since that includes all the relevant game links without having to go to the start menu group.
