open the Windows Store and search for free games. Browse through and download whatever looks fun, or do a search for a specific game in the store and see if it is available (might not be free though).

Hi Cluless :)

I'm not sure if it's still the case in Windows 8.1, but games can be enabled/disabled under Windows 7 (at least). Go in the Control Panel and click on Programs. From there, click on Turn on and off Windows features. In the list that will appear, you should have an item called Games and there's various games under it, like Titan Mahjong and Chess. Check the games you want to play and they'll be enabled. You can search for them after and they'll come out. Let me know how it goes.
