    So I have a HDD split up into 2 partitions 1 windows and 1 for games and such. Steam installed on the windows partition and steam games are installed on the other partition. When I connected my steam account to cortex all games showed up but instead of play it says install. Can this issue be fixed?
    Same for ALL games

    I would recommend not having your partitions set up like that. All games to be able to play with cortex have to be installed on the same partition.

    If you add the game manually, will the "install" button go away? I know the games I've hidden in steam (old versions with free masters and such) showed up as installable in Cortex (just had to hide them there as well), but almost all other steam games work as they should, despite being installed on two different drives (an SSD from some, a HDD for most) than the OS, Steam and Cortex. These are physical drives though, maybe Cortex has a problem with a partitioned drive. Cortex automatically found most of 400+ games divided over these two drives and split between GOG, Steam, uplay and Origin. From steam I think I only had to add the two bioshock remasters manually :/

    I have my games on a separate hard drive, and Cortex detects them and can run them just fine.
    The second partition is another drive letter (like D:\ E:\ F:\ etc.) and you added the folder as a Steam Library Folder, correct?

    Try clicking the refresh (circle arrow) button at the top of your Cortex library, see if that re-syncs the games.
