Yeah you should have looked into doing that before just copy and pasting. Steam thankfully makes this quite simple, just add the new location as the Steam library in Settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders. 

 

The rest..  not nearly as straightforward. 

 

Epic

Origin

Riot

 

Good luck, just reading these tutorials I know there is some nuance there that if you're not familiar with Windows and file management, is going to be lost.
