    good deal.... I know they work cause i been using them since I first upgraded to W8 from 7, and found they had been removed in W8. I just had to re register on a game site to get hold of the D/L link again, I wasn't aware there were going to be a lot of new people who went from 7 right to 10 and never experienced this with 8 and 8.1. So now everybody can at least have one small thing back, I thought 10 was going to be a re release of the 7 GUI too, with its eye candy, but I guess this is what it is. Too bad MS just can't give home users a choice of GUI's and let business have their bland stuff.

    I recommend that you take a look on the web. I found a convenient package of the Windows 7/8 solitaire games including Mahjong that unpack, install and run properly on W10.
    msgames_win8_x64.msi Forget where I found it but it is 90Mb. I disliked the 'official' W10 versions of the games.

    Go to this thread
    https://www.windows10forums.com/threads/old-ms-games-for-w10.2273/

    Don't use the link I posted first, it no longer works, try the one posted under mine.

    If that one doesn't work I'll try to get another one, or one of the others that got the file can uploaded it to another download site.

    If the screenshot you have here is correct for what you are asking, then you cannot make these moves because you have no free cells. Get rid of the four cards in the top left and then your moves would be legal.

    I agree! I donwloaded another version but it is ugly, does not keep stats and does not tell you when there are no more permissible moves. Bad move,Microsoft!

    If you look through this forum you will find links and filenames that you can use to download all the old W7/8 Microsoft solitaire games. Or search the web for msgames_win8_x64.msi I found that some months ago and downloaded it and I have the proper freecell and spider. I won't try to upload the file as it is 90Mb

    I don't. I guess I am just lucky, W10 on my main PC has not had any of the problems other have had... but I have been through them all and more on the Insider program!

    Me too, had windows 7 but with that program it has a constant problem with always skipping back when I would be typing! Switching to 10 had cured that but navigating through this new mess just trying to find the control panel etc., is frustrating!! And why they took the games off is beyond me!! Think is must be for the MONEY, like every other corrupt self serving Corporation here in America!! DEATH TO MICROSOFT!!!
