    Hi robman,

    Welcome to the Forum.

    The daily challenges you are referring to — do you mean in Microsoft's Solitaire Collection, or are you referring to something else?

    Note If you don't normally sign in to Solitaire, uninstalling the app will erase all of your games and progress. However, if you sign in to Solitaire before you uninstall, all your data will be saved in the cloud, and any saved games will not be lost when you uninstall and reinstall Microsoft Solitaire Collection. You'll be able to pick up where you left off in any game you're currently playing.

    1. On the Start screen, swipe in from the right edge (or, if you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen and move the mouse pointer up), select Search, and then enter Microsoft Solitaire Collection in the search box.
    2. Press and hold (or right-click) the app tile, and the select Uninstall.
    3. Restart your device.
    4. Press Windows Key + R.
    5. In the Open box, type wsreset.exe, and then press Enter. The Windows Store will open so you can reinstall Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

    Are you able to post a screen shot of your desktop?

    Do you see a taskbar at bottom of screen with the Microsoft flag on the far left?

    That flag is your Start

    Click that then continue with instructions given in previous post.

    You could try resetting the MS collection also?

    Click the star icon and select the settings (The cogwheel you see on the left)
    Click the item "Apps & Features"
    Scroll down the list, and, if you can see The MS Solitaire collection, click it and select "Advanced options"
    In the nest window, select "Reset"

    Reinstall it back to the taskBar?

    You do that manually. Right click the and select "more" and then the option. Yes. It will remove all the data.
    But, Go to
    C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Copy the whole of this folder somewhere safe. When you have completed the "reset", put it back again.

    No guarantee, but it has worked several times for me.

    When you searched and the Solitaire Collection appeared in search results:
    • If you right-click on it you can choose pin to taskbar

    Thanks for the feedback, Rob. Can you go to the top of this thread, where you first posted, and mark it as "Solved"

    My suggestion was, however, a first class way of keeping a backup of your solitaire progress. I go through the procedure, whenever I am doing some dangerous experiments.
