Can I copy the games that came with Win XP and move them to the new machines using Win 7 Home Prem.? I use that Solitare game a lot to keep myself occupied! Or can I put them on a stick and run them from there. I used to do that at work after they removed all the games from our pc's.

You can certainly try. It won't hurt anything. You may have to run them in XP compatibility mode.

How do I copy them off of the XP machine? I tried going to the program files and found them and sent them to the stick but it seems like they are just the shortcuts and not the actual program files.

Right-click on the shortcut - Properties - Look in the TARGET "box" - that will tell you where the executable file is located. Open Windows Explorer, navigate to that location, copy the executable to your usb drive.
