    MS Solitaire, how to access

    From looking around, Solitaire is "installed" but for the life of me I can't figure out how to get it to start. Whenever I click on MS Solitaire in all apps, it opens MS Store and wants me to sign in to an XBOX account. I don't have an XBOX account and don't really want one. There is a guest box but clicking it gets me nowhere.
    At the risk of sounding stupid, what's up with the "new" Solitaire???

    As I recall, Win8 created the account for me when I first started using it a over a year ago. Logging on is the same as for your Windows login so you should have access so long as you are able to log into Windows 10 lumpy95. You have the account whether you like it or not (at least that's how it is for me). Of course they generated a wacky XBOX user name for me (never changed it; don't really care. lol).

    The XBox games are on line. All that's installed is the link. You must be signed in with your MS account. Click on the search icon in the Taskbar and type Solitaire, then click on Microsoft Solitaire Collection and follow the prompts. For the Desktop version, click on the Store icon in the Taskbar and search Solitaire. You will find several free choices to download.

    Or just copy the files from an earlier Windows version...

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    Thanks David, If I get tired of the ads, I may ask you for a step by step to get and install the old one.
