    Solitaire


    I had Windows 7 and Solitaire was on the screen as an icon along with many other icons that I used to open programs. Now that I have updated to Windows 10 the Solitaire icon is still there but does nothing when I click on it. My question is, how do I make the icon open Solitaire as it did in Windows 7?

    The solitaire from WIn7 has been removed from 10. Due to the upgrade from 7 to 10 it's possible that the ICON is a left over and there is no code to execute behind it.

    Here's what you can do, check out this link and go to post #43. Jimbo has downloads for the old games that work in 10

    Well.. first I forgot the link but when I tried it out it didn't work,, even in compatibility mode.

    Thanks, I believe you may have meant 45 instead of 43.
