As the title says. I downloaded twitch and it shows none of my games in my games tab. I ran the smart scan and it doesn’t see any and locating manual won’t find them either. Not sure what to do.
The title of the thread is Twitch app not seeing any of my installed games. Also, the OP tried several methods such as running a smart scan and manually locating the games. Still, nothing seemed to work.
Fortunately, there are other methods you should try when the Twitch app is not finding games. Today we will show you how to fix this major problem.
What can I do if the Twitch app doesn’t find games?
1. Use Opera GX
You can try using Twitch through a browser. We recommend Opera GX as it’s a special browser dedicated to gaming. More importantly, this tool stands on top of the list of the browsers perfectly optimized for Twitch.
That’s because Opera GX has a dedicated Twitch button for quick access. This browser has a modern UI and great resource management features for quick streaming and gaming.
In Opera GX, you can even get notifications when the streamers you’re following start broadcasting.
Opera GX is the favorite browser for gamers and it has a dedicated Twitch button on its left menu.
2. Sign in with the Twitch account
Sometimes, it is possible that you forgot to sign in. Of course, if you don’t sign in with your Twitch account, no games will appear.
If you can’t sign up, we’ve got a very friendly guide on how to solve this problem.
3. Refresh the app
Quite a few users solved this issue by refreshing their app. Just click on the button from the upper-left corner of the window.
The explanation for this is simple. The servers are overloaded and it takes some time to load all the games. So, a refresh will reload the platform with all the games on it.
