    Ad Free Solitaire etc Old W7 classic games still work on W10 !!!


    Hi there

    For Solitaire /. Spider Solitaire / Hearts etc addicts who HATES the new subscription model a reminder here that the old Classic games supplied with W7 STILL work on W10. (At least the 64 bit version still does - I don't have any x86 machines so I can't try).

    For instructions follow my thread / posts in the W8 Forum.

    So for those who use these in Boring Meetings -- THEY ARE BACK again.

    Just search the W8 Forum as it was a long time ago when I gave instructions on how to install them.

    here's some of them -- Management's Horror again !!!!!!!

    Minesweeper from Windows XP also still works. The last decent version of the game.
