Microsoft has removed those games from Windows 8 by design. But these can be downloaded and installed from here:  http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/33814-Microsoft-Games-for-Windows-8. Scroll down to link, you will also need an App to unzip the file. You can download one from App store. I use Unpacker and it is free.  They install flawlessly and run the same as on Win 7. Hope this helps and if you have any other issues or questions post and we will be glad to help you solve them

Hi

 

Here is the easiest way to find anything in the Windows 8 Store.

Open the Store app.

Press WinKey+Q to display the Search Charm.

Type the name of the app or game (examples:  Hearts, Solitaire, Chess, etc) and press the Search Icon.

In the results, you will get a variety of different games for each search.
