And here it is.  Minesweeper provides proof positive that Windows 10 sucks at basic math.  The "001" in the upper-right is how many mines I have left to flag.  UM... WHERE?  All the numbers are accounted for, so why don't you just go ahead and declare that a win, Windows 10?  Oh right... you can't, 'cause you can't do basic math...   :nono:

That's only a bug of the Minesweeper in Windows 10, not of Windows 10. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending Windows 10 by any means)

You can go back to Windows 7 or 8, no?

Have you considered using a third party provided game instead of the bundled one within windows 10? No doubt there exist some free ones, probably some open source ones as well. Also I think there are ways that old versions of the game from previous versions of windows can somehow be made to run on newer windows versions, I think I once saw an article on "how to geek" about that.

Obviously though, if you can go back to an earlier version of windows (do you have any system images?) that would be your best course of action, because issues with this game are just the tip of the iceberg (or perhaps more approproately to this thread the equivalent of this sign https://www.google.co.uk/search?tbm=isch&hl=en-GB&source=hp&biw=&bih=&q=achtung+minen+sign&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2 ) when it comes to windows 10.

Yeah alright, I'll try some open-source alternatives...  But I just played a quick few Win 10 Minesweeper games and was reminded of one of my chief annoyances.  With the classic Minesweeper, you would never hit a mine on your very 1st click.  'Cause what's the point of that?  :-(

Believe it or not, if you can find a computer running XP you can lift mines direct from XP in one easy move. Look for a file called 'Winmine.exe' - it's normally in the top level of the Windows folder in XP but sometimes in the System32 folder - copy it to a memory stick then paste it into your Windows folder. To make a short cut to it, open the Windows folder in Windows Explorer and RIGHT click on 'Winmine.exe' then select 'Send to desktop (create shortcut)'. Job done.

 

I can't guarantee it works for Win 10 but it certainly does for Win 7 and 8/8.1. I did this originally because I didn't like the graphics in the Win 7 version.

Why would one do that? It seems like a perfectly legitimate reason to revert to Win 7 for me.
