How do I get new software to show in the menu

Sat Jun 23, 2018 9:33 pm

I tried adding a few games through the add/remove software feature. But after I install them I don't see anything new in the menu. Am I missing a step? Thanks in advance!

Not every software install puts a menu item.
Try rebooting
Try going [Menu] --> [Preferences] --> [Main Menu Editor]
Look for the software in each menu and make sure it is enabled if there:
If not there then you can use main menu editor to add anything to any menu provided you know the filename of the software.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
