I loved playing Minesweeper in my spare time on Windows 7. I can't find it on Windows 8. What happened to Minesweeper and other Microsoft Games (Chess, Solitaire)?
From the Start Screen
Then go back and check out a few of the others. The free Microsoft Mahjong is very colourful
Chess Titans is gone. People have been able to copy it over though.
Below are the available games that have come with Windows is the past.
Circa Windows 3
Preceeded by 3D Pinball for Windows - Space Cadet? (Microsoft Plus! 95)
Was in the Microsoft Windows Entertainment Pack, came back as Mahjong Titans in Vista.
They are gone.
You can see the instructions on how ot get them from a previous version of Windows here: http://www.intowindows.com/play-windows-7-games-in-windows-8/
