I would like to know how I can access the games I have bought through GOG to be able to be played in a non network environment, as an example summer cottage, boat, or RV?

Thanks.

DRM Free

All games you purchase on GOG are accessible offline once you download them from the website or GOG Galaxy

All of them.
Not to be an asshole but... you've been here since 2012. How do you not know GOG games are DRM free and require no internet connection to play? Have you not bought anything here in 4 years?

Download the installers. If using Galaxy, use the backup installer option under more downloads. Copy said installers to the non networked environment. Run the installers and install the games. Play.

Just launch them!?

If you're talking about the installers (to install games while you're offline):
From the website
1. click the game in your library
2. download everything you find in the left column (called "GAME DOWNLOADS")

From Galaxy client
1. click the game in your library
2. click "MORE" -> "Extra downloads"
3. download the installer

And dude, he's from Canada. It's like the old line, how do you get a woman to laugh at a joke on Friday? Tell it to her on Monday.

I was joking. :P Besides if I wasn't joking I'd be an idiot. I live a few miles south of the border which means at any time one of you can take a piss on me.

Basically it involves two steps:

1. Mark Jmich's answer as the solution.
2. Just do it.

How can a stupid comment like that not portray you as anything but……
I had a network outage a few days ago and I couldn’t access the game, “The Witcher 3” I looked in the directory to see if I could find an anything.exe, (there was a “CrashReporter.exe”,” GalaxyClient Helper.exe”,” GalaxyClient.exe”,” GalaxyClientService.exe”, and “unins000.exe”). I thought maybe it might be in the “Games\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt” directory, but there wasn’t so I thought I might have installed it incorrectly and checked the download directory and guess what Genius, there wasn’t anything in there that remotely looked like all the other programs I have installed in the past. I even looking for a huge file that’s at least 60 gig and there was nothing.

So please forgive my naiveté as I didn’t find any way to either play or install it without network access. By the way this is the first time I have bought a game that I didn’t have actual disks in hand.
I appreciate all other replies that actually used their grey matter to help.
Just out of curiosity, your reply; Did it make you feel smarter, better, or just plain dumb, considering you didn’t have to work your grey matter to ridicule me?

plegace: [...]
for reference, Witcher 3 can be launched directly from <game folder>\bin\x64\witcher3.exe
shortcut tales you to the galaxy client folder, which isn't a proper place to look for game files.
