Always found the Steam icons for the old "Star Wars" games messy, tried to come up with a clean consistent design.

Apologies if this is not the right place to ask but I figure I might get some suggestions since I guess some of the people in here are as OCD about this as me.

Is there no way to rename steam games because this sorting order for Kotor, Kotor 2 and tOR is infuriating

Quoted for hugeness

There is, you create a shortcut link:

1. Create a standard Chrome shortcut on your Desktop. You only need to do this once no matter how many times you do the below steps.

2. Go into the game's Properties menu in Steam, pick 'Create Desktop Shortcut'.

3. Look at File Info/Properties of that shortcut. There should be a link which says: 'steam://' and a number. Copy and paste this to a notepad.

4. Go to 'Add a Non-Steam game' in Steam. Pick the Chrome shortcut (make sure it's the shortcut from the desktop, NOT the main Chrome exe itself).

5. There should be a blank colored box with 'Chrome' and a little chrome icon in it amongst the other Steam icons. Click on its properties.

6. There are three boxes. The title, the launch URL and the launch directory. Put the game title in with whatever adjustments you want to make to it to get it to order correctly. Put the link you copy and pasted before in the second box. Type steam in the third box. Then 'Close'.

7. Change view in the top right from 'Icons', to 'List View' to Icons' which will refresh the order of the icons. You should now see that blank colored box in the right alphabetical placement. Then 'Set Custom Image', add in your Steam Icon for it.

8. If you haven't already done it, go to the original out of place icon. 'Set Categories'. 'Hide this Game in my Library'. Done.
