Solitaire in Windows 10

Dear Computer Lady,

I recently replaced my old computer with a new, Windows 10 computer.

On my old computer, I used to have games such as free cell and solitaire, but I don’t see them in Windows 10. Do you know if I can get them on this new computer?

Thanks, Mary

Dear Mary,

Microsoft got rid of their solitaire games in Windows 8, but they have replaced it in Windows 10 with a Windows store app named, Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

The Solitaire collection app is free, but there are advertisements when you use it.

To find the solitaire collection in windows 10, just follow these directions:

1. Tap the Windows log key on your keyboard and type, solitaire.

2. You will see, Microsoft Solitaire Collection in the start menu, click to open it.

3. If you want to put a shortcut to the Solitaire Collection in your taskbar, Right-click on it and click, “Pin to taskbar”.

If you are looking for more variety in your solitaire games, you might be interested in my favorite, SolSuite 2017 at:
For just $10 you get a high-quality collection of 678 solitaire card games.
