How to Get Solitaire on Windows

By Chris Miksen

"Windows Features" contains some of the core applications and games that come on the Windows installation disc. Windows Features allows you to "Turn Off" games or applications so that they will no longer appear in Windows. If you cannot find Solitaire in your list of games, it was likely turned off. Once you turn Solitaire back on, you can begin playing the game again.

Open the "Start" menu.

Click the "Search" text box. Type "Windows Features." Click "Turn Windows Features On or Off."

Click the "+" next to "Games." Mark the box next to "Solitaire." Click "OK." Windows displays a dialog box and notifies you when the game is turned back on.
