    A few years ago I installed a version of Spider Solitaire from the Windows store. This version, unlike all others I have seen, allowed the user to simply click on a card for it to move to another pile, instead of clicking and dragging as seems to be the normal method of making a move.

    I recently had to reset my PC, reinstalling Windows 10, and in the process removing all of my files. Prior to the reset I made a backup copy of everything on my computer.

    I would now like to reinstall this version of Spider Solitaire, but it is no longer available in the Windows store. Unfortunately I don’t recall the name of the maker of this app.

    Is it possible to reinstall it from the files which I have backed up? Where among those files would the app be stored? Will I be looking for an exe file or something different?

    Alternatively, if anyone can recognize the particular version from my description and can point me to another source, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance,

    Robert

    Thanks Wolfie,
    The Spider game looks good but it is still click and drag. The one I had didn't require dragging.

    Cheers,
    Robert

    Dave,
    Thanks, but again this is not quite what I had.

    No disrespect intended, but, I am a dedicated card player, including spider. I cannot see how it could be played with a random click option. There are, inevitably, choices, and a click could not determine those??

    The click always chose the pile which already had more cards, ie if one pile had 7 down to 2 and another pile had 4 down to 2, clicking on an ace would place it on the first of those two piles. If two piles were equal it would choose the left-most pile.

    And if you wanted to you could always over-ride this automatic feature by dragging as in the more common game.

    There are games where you click once to select the card to move and then click again where you want the card to go. But I prefer dragging myself.

    OK. I surrender!
    But, for the OP, Robert, I have googled and I think this my be what you are looking for

    http://www.segtechsystems.com/downloads-and-links.html

    Scroll down and you will see a Windows 7 icon. It has the games you are looking for, and it advises they all work in Win 10.
