Longtime Windows users remember the classic games, Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts since its been a staple of the OS since Windows 3.0. But in Windows 8, the company decided to remove these classics games. The removal was odd, considering that Microsoft admitted those classics games have a devoted following.
Sure, you could get the new modern apps from the Windows Store, but for fans of these classic games, it’s just not the same. But now, just in time for Solitaire’s 25th anniversary, the company has returned returned it.
In the latest Windows 10 tech preview, build 10061, which was released this week. To find it, go to Start > All Apps > Microsoft Solitaire Collection Preview.
Not all versions or themes are available yet, but, you do get the classic theme to add the extra dash of nostalgia.
While Windows 10 will come with the nostalgic experience for you, while wasting time at your desk, fans of Hearts or Minesweeper still need to grab the modern versions from the Windows Store. But that might change by the time the final version of Windows 10 is released later this year.
