    you mean desktop icons or what?

    all my game icons are in this folder
    C:\Valve\Steam\steam\games

    just associate the shortcuts to each icon

    Re: my steam games do not have the proper icons.

    If you're on windows 7, just pin steam to your taskbar and when you right click it lists your recently played games and you can pin from that list so those games you'd have on your desktop would be a right click away even if steam isn't running.

    It's pretty much the right click menu you get from the steam icon near the clock, except that you can pin the games you play to it.

    off topic but my win 7 install does this with random programs sometimes also, shortcuts just end up like those in your screenshot, everything works fine but the icons are fubared.

    Just make the icon shortcuts again or use the tweakui to fix them.

    it does, no idea why you have that problem for all icons, I can only think that if the icon folder was moved or deleted then all icons would suffer perhaps.
