As you’d expect, office workers in the entire North American subcontinent revolted. Their favorite past time was at risk. They’d rather stick to Windows XP, some of them probably yelled. XP never did them any wrong. The new fancy Microsoft Solitaire Collection wasn’t worth it anyway.
But like many Windows 10 stories this week, this one was also misreported.
Ok so here’s the low down. You can still play Solitaire for free on Windows 10. The most popular form of the game – Spider is free to play. No video ads, nothing.
If you don’t know how to get started, here’s a little guide.
Click the Start button.
Now either search for Microsoft Solitaire Collection or spot it in the right column of the Start menu. If you can’t find it, download it from the Windows Store.
Click on it and you’ll be asked to sign in with your Microsoft account. You’ll also need to agree to the terms and conditions to let Microsoft upload the data to its cloud. This makes sure that your Solitaire scores are never lost, even if your PC is damaged.
You’ll, of course, need to be connected to an active internet connection to do all this.
Once all the setting up is done, you’ll now see the screen below.
Lots and lots of Solitaire stuff ha.
What’s Not Ad Free
From this screen, if you play the Pyramid or TriPeaks game, you’ll have to sit through ads at the end of every game. But these games are mostly out of your league. And I say that lovingly. I’m one of those people too. I mean, I can’t even figure out FreeCell yet, there’s now way I’m winning at TriPeaks.
