    Windows 8 Games

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get the old Hearts or Solitaire games to work in W-8?

    I tried compatibility mode and that did not work.

    I think somebody told me there was a new Minesweeper in Windows 8? But, you're right, Hearts and Solitaire have always been better games. Minesweeper is like the most overrated part of Windows.
