Windows 8: Get the games back (Minesweeper, Solitaire ...)

Ask a question


Many people are wondering what became of the games under Windows 8!
  • Games such as Minesweeper, Solitaire and Hearts are not included in Windows 8 and Windows RT. Instead, you can use the Windows Store to find and install the games you want on your computer:
  • From the Home screen (Metro), tap or click to open the Windows Store.
  • You can search for games such as Minesweeper, Solitaire and Hearts directly, or you can press or click on "Games" to display all the games available and then sort the list by sub-category, price or classification.
