Helping my sweet old(er) neighbor set up her new All-in-One with Windows 8.1 on it and, yeah, she's wondering where her Solitaire went.

 

And please, if your answer is, "It's available in the Store" don't bother with the Reply button on this post.

 

 

I set this up about a year ago on my Mother-in-Law's new computer using this guide & I used the Microsoft Games Patcher but that link (on the How-To-Geek website) is no longer working correctly.

 

I googled for an alternative but some of the 'download here' sites seemed...a little sketchy.

 

And then I found this.

 

Has anyone here used the Winaero software?

 

Just putting the feelers out there before I D/L it.

 

TIA,

 

Winterland

Just wanted to give any other Members a heads up if they are looking for additional information about this Winaero software.

 

It looks like it has been used and is friendly (read: no virus or nastiness).

 

Found a post right here in the Windows 10 section.

 

And, I went ahead and installed it on my friend's new All-in-One and she is very very happy.

 

When you install the app, you can select which one of the games you want or just install them all.

 

 

NOTE: I believe there is one piece of bundled something-something, which I'm used to looking for and *unchecked*, but wanted to give you all a heads up.

 

 

onward,

 

Winterland
