Windows 7: Games on Windows 7

Games on Windows 7

This the first time I have tried to play games on Win 7 and got sort of a shock. I was expecting games similar to those on Win XP.

I went into All Programs on the Start Menu and clicked the Games folder and got this:

Name:  games1.jpg
Views: 279
Size:  2.7 KB

I clicked on "Games Explorer" and got this:

-games2.jpg

Now I assume that games do NOT come with Win 7 or am I wrong?

How can I play games on Windows 7??

When you installed Windows you probabaly didn't allow it to install its games. Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, in the left pane click Turn Windows features on or off and make sure the box Games is checked.
