As expected, due to the FREE offer of Windows 10, Microsoft will be looking for ways to profit. Though you could get the paid version of Solitaire in Windows 8 it wasn't

pre-installed as is the case in Windows 10.

Will an ad blocker such as Adblock Plus hide the ads?.....don't know....but I bet it wouldn't

No, Adblock Plus only blocks ads in your browser.

I am sure there will be plenty of free versions in the app store or just pull the one from Windows 7, legal issues aside.

If you knew the URL from which the adverts were coming it might be possible to set up some sort of blocking which makes it impossible for ANY program at all (including browsers and programs with adverts inserted like this) to receive data from the URL in question.



Also there is always the option of finding a solitaire program to download from another site, no doubt there will be open source third party programs for this, free third party programs for this and paid third party programs depending on where you look. Some of them will probably be of the sort which can just be run as an on-demand exe file rather than needing installation.

Win 7 games for win 10.

 

There are several out there.

 

The safest is probably the one from Winaero, They've been around a long time.

 I've been using Solsuite from Treecardgames.  It's a $10 one time purchase, and works great.  I've been using it since Windows 8 came out.  It has hundreds of variations on Solitaire, but I only use Spider solitaire.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
