    As the title states, I can no longer browse or search manually, in order to add games that reside on my system that Cortex cannot see and add.

    The only "options" I have and see, are program-files (not games) that are listed in the select game window when the + sign is clicked on; to add a game manually.

    Version 7.3.32.179 Razer Central Installed, no updates detected.

    Any help appreciated!

    Hey there!

    Thank you very much for sharing your concern with us here. My name is Michelle from the Razer Cortex PC technical support team. I will be happy to assist you with your issue.

    Since this feature 'Browse' is security-related, we removed it from the latest version of Cortex to enhance security. We will add it in a future version of Razer Cortex.

    Here if you want to add a game, please launch your game from desktop or any other place on your PC with Razer Cortex processing in the background. And see whether the game can be added automatically on your Cortex MY LIBRARY.

    If you still cannot add your game successfully by using the above method, please reinstall your game and try not to customize the installation path. If you must, please just change the disk and keep the other part. For example, Osu's default installation path is C:\Users\michelle.chang\AppData\Local\osu!\osu!.exe. Please keep the red part and customize the other part. Then, use the method I mentioned above to try again to add this game to your library.

    Please feel free to let me know if this issue persists.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Michelle
