<br /> DeadPixel487 <br /> <br /> This is even more important now that Galaxy has cloud saves: click the icon, Galaxy opens, cloud saves sync, game launches. At present, only the game launches. If Galaxy is closed cloud saves will not sync.

Yes! The option to add / remove the desktop shortcut SHOULD be included on the 'settings' page! The option for automatic updates is already there. Why isn't the desktop shortcut option there as well?

Yeah, not having to dig through folders to add the icon for the game I'm currently playing would be nice. <br /> <br /> I disable the icons because I don't like the clutter and constantly having to delete the icons every time a game updates, but I like to keep an icon for the game I'm in the middle of on my desktop. <br /> <br /> Right now I have to hunt through and copy out the shortcut, sometimes I need to create a shortcut because not all games have a proper one.

I have added old games to the Galaxy client, sometimes taking them from my Steam folder (blech, I rebuy all my games that I once owned on Steam when they become available on GOG) and then adding it to Galaxy. For all games that are manually added to Galaxy, there is no option to add an icon. <br /> <br /> Since manually adding games to Galaxy is a good time to maybe re-organize your game install directories without breaking the games, it seems like a perfect place to have an option to add icons, both Desktop and Start Menu.

The ability to have a shortcut added to the desktop during installation through the client is already an option in the settings. Even if you have this option disabled the client creates a shortcut. The client just places it in the game install folder. You can then manually copy it to the desktop later. A button (perhaps under the "more" option on the game page) that does this copy for you would be nice.
