Where Did Solitaire Go?

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10

Colette can’t find her favorite games. She writes: “Why I cannot find my Card Games like Solitaire ? I have Windows 10 and I used to play them.”


Were these games the built-in games in the Windows 7 Games folder like Solitaire or Minesweep or games you purchased an installed separately?  If you purchased and installed them separately, they should still be there. Search the name of the game in the search box and click on the result.  If they were part of the Games library on Windows 7, they’ve been overwritten since they were part of the operating system.

However, it’s very easy to find fun, free games in Windows 10. Just click here for an article that explains step-by-step how to find your favorite games.
