Hi smile

Not sure if this is the right Board for my question but here goes grin

Can anyone recommend a site which offers a free, downloadable "Classic Solitaire" game ??

I did find what I want at Gametop but don't know if that's a "safe" site for downloads whistle

Thanks.

If you have Windows 7 it comes installed for free. Have you checked that version out?

Yes, I did have it when I first started using Win7, because I used to play it, but I don't know where it's gone !!

I've obviously "done" something ghastly shocked

You should be able to find it (if it's installed) by typing
sol
in the Start Search.

If it's not installed, go to Control Panel --> Programs --> Turn Windows features on or off.

I've found Solitaire (under Games in Control Panel/Windows Features as you said) and I've now checked its box - but how do I get to play it ?? woozy

[I want to get the launch icon onto Desktop.]

Select the Start button, All Programs, Games, right click on the solitaire icon and send desktop as shortcut.

Glad you found it!

Well, that's where you install it. If it wasn't checked there, it wasn't installed -- or at least it was a "Windows Feature" that wasn't turned on.

After it's installed, it should come up in the Start Search (just type sol) and you can send a shortcut to the desktop the way Ana described.

They took the games (solitaire, minesweeper, etc.) out of Windows 8, so hold onto your Windows 7.

They didn't take those games re: Solitaire away from Windows 8, they make you Download it from their famous Apps Store, they are still Free and once you download it they stay on your PC. They have included a Solitary Bundle, 2 or 3 Mahjong games, Minesweeper which has a different look, and many more other free games.

OH, and I also downloaded the Free Cribbage game and love it since there is nobody in my family that no longer wants to play that game.
