Thumbs up Downloaded Games

Greetings,
I am changing over to Windows 7 64-Bit and I was wondering if I will be able to get all the games I downloaded from Amazon and Steam back. Thanks.

Yes you can always redownload them again but I suggest backing them up first to save time

This link should take you to it. http://www.computerforums.org/forums...editprofilepic
If not. It's in "User CP" and under the "your profile" section, you should find "Edit profile picture"

Do you still have access to the hard drive where your previous Steam was installed? There's a way to move that folder without having to re-download all of your games.

I think in order to have an avatar you need at least 25 posts if I am correct.

I think this what you are talking about https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...7418-YUBN-8129. Also this would be useful too https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...8794-YPHV-2033

You guys are all very helpful. I wish I discovered this site years ago instead of posting on Yahoo or something like that.

It's a really great site. I wish I found it before September of last year, it would have made me love computers earlier.

Speaking of that, I've almost been here a year!
