Keep game information up to date

Windows can provide additional information about the games installed on your computer. Windows searches the information that comes with each game for an Internet address where updates can be found, and then checks that address. Usually, this address is a publisher's website. You must be connected to the Internet to check for updates.

  3. Select the Download information about installed games check box.
