If you got one of our microSD cards pre-loaded with Retropie, you probably got it with the “Favorites” and “Last Played” disabled or just hidden. Only the “All Games” comes selected on most of our images. We do that to unclutter the interface and let the customer go straight to the games, but many customers ask about these options, and it’s easy to just enable them back on.
First boot into your Retropie microSD card. You should boot right into the “Retropie” or “Options” option in the menu highlighted.
