I haven't been to the movies myself do to cost but I still rent dvd from family video. I hope watching videos doesn't move from the store to online. Family video does keep opening up new stores. I actually prefer watching dvds on my tv. They had vhs in the past.

You never played Microsoft solitaire (you can turn off the time option and scoring option if you want).?
I would not know how to play it. The only real game I know is chess. And then some games we played as kids. But that was 70 years ago.

Here is how if you want to try it someday.

Solitaire: how to play - Windows Help

That what I do, when I get really bored. I turn off the timed game and score options and choose draw one card option. Feel free to choose what options you would prefer.

If you can't access the games here is how.

To access games:

- go to start menu
- search for "Turn windows Features on or off"
- check "Games" and press ok
- your games should then be available in the start menu

I use the Windows 7 built in Chess Game and have yet to over heat my computer.

What I don't like about the Chess Game is when I move up a level Windows 7 cheats and starts beating me to often. It must be a Windows 7 Update causing my problem.

I never really could figure out chess.

Here is the procedure I used to create my W8 Preview VHDs:

I haven't tried it with the W10TPs.

Yep, when that happens it's like you are playing against all of these players at the same time.

Yes, it's definitely an update that's responsible.
