Remove Pre-Installed Windows Games

Would you like to play a game? No? Well, then let me show you how to delete the pre-installed games that come with Windows Vista and 7, then! I can’t think of any reason why one would want to get rid of stuff like Solitaire, Free Cell and Minesweeper, but then again I never play them, so there might be others out there that feel the same.

Here’s the tip:

Go to Start>Control Panel and double-click “Programs and Features”.

Off to the left you’ll see an option to “Turn Windows Features On or Off“. Click on it, and a window that looks like this will appear.

Simply expand the “Games” tree, and un-check the ones you don’t want anymore. You can always come back and re-install them later via this method, although you may need your Windows Vista install disk.

Gameless! What a shame! Although, if you’re looking to restore your games, this is a good tip to have handy!
