    Does anyone have a link of the Win 7 Chess Titans game?
    Not worth it IMO. It's so slow to make a move at level 10. The chess app "Chess Lv.100" from Windows Store moves in less than 1 second even on level 100. It's a lot more challenging and you probably need to be as good as USCF Chess expert (which is chess title below National Master) to beat the game.

    Anyone tried Tinker yet on Windows 10?
    I don't see Tinker as an installed game on my Win7 computers. Maybe it's in More Games from Microsoft in Start, Games.

    Microsoft Tinker was offered free through Games for Windows at one point, I still have it one some of my computers running Windows 7.

    Those are not the classic Win 7 games. Those are updated versions that do not look or function the same. I have that Collection installed, and it is different.
    They are the exact same games, just with a new UI and more features.

    I imagine that @jimbo45 was able to accomplish this on one of the very early builds before they changed things because now it either points to the new version or you can't install it.

    Hi there

    STILL works (X64 version) just re-install it again. You should be able to find a link I made to get these. They ARE the Win 7 Classic games. No ads etc -exactly what was supplied in W7 (including Pinball if you like that !!).
