Hello arthurkadas,

 

Games are now available at the Microsoft Store (some free others you need to buy.)  From the Windows Start screen, click on the Store icon. From the store window, click scroll the screen to the left until you see Games then click on the Top Free option. You should find a copy of solitaire amongst the many free games available. Download it and then install it to your PC.

It doesn't have pre-installed games. Go to the store and search for the games you want. 

Or if you want the executables you can get them off the net. Not sure if its legal...
