What is the game directory?

Very often, after installing a computer game, it is necessary to perform some manipulations in its directories to launch it. And this requirement may cause bewilderment among a large number of PC users, especially beginners, since not everyone knows what the game directory is.

And the explanation is quite simple! The game directory is a folder with game files installed on your personal computer.

It is much more difficult to find where the game directory is. This can be done in several ways:

  • It is necessary to click the right mouse button on the game shortcut on the desktop, in the opened menu select “Properties”, go to the tab “Shortcut”. There will be a field "Working folder", which indicates the place where the game file is located. This is the directory.
  • Game installation is usually performed in the Program Files folder located on the system hard drive or in the Games folder in the root directory.
  • You can use the system search by typing in it the name of the game.
  • You can find the game directory in the installer by running it again. A window will appear indicating to the user the path to the default game directory.
