Solitaire Disappeared

Solitaire just disappeared from my computer. Anybody got any ideas on how I can get it back?

Do you have a restore point prior to its disappearance?

It's in Windows Features - Turn On or Off, in games > solitaire folder. Go over steps 1 - 6 + 8 - 9 of the tutorial and double check the feature is enabled.

Hi okwrangler2003,

The Games folder is a special folder in Windows.
The shorcut can be found at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games.
Double-click Solitaire and see if it opens!

Thank you all for the advice, I will be trying it, BUT first I have a funny story.


I found Solitaire, For some reason it moved from the Games Folder to the Start-Up Menu. Anybody got any ideas what happened? I have not done anything different lately.


Thank you again.

Who knows!

Maybe a slip of the mouse not knowing it. If something had happened I would have assumed that more than just Solitaire would have been moved but the whole Games folder!

I am glad that you have sorted it out and thank you for sharing the solution, it may well help others with the same problem who come across this thread.

Windows 7 Solitaire
Has anybody noticed that the same deals keep coming up? I would think that the deals should be completely random. I like Vegas style with 1 card at a time. Is there a fix or am I doing something wrong?
