Play the classic, ad free games you loved from Windows 7 (along with Mahjong Titans, Chess Titans and Purble Place from Windows Vista) on computers running Windows 8 and Windows 10. Winaero (who has quite a nice collection of useful free Windows utilities and programs, check them out) has packaged these great games into one downloadable file that will run on Windows 8 and 10. Complete directions are on the page – download and extract the .zip file to install the program, then choose any or all of these games:

- Purble Place
- Spider Solitaire
- Internet Backgammon
- Internet Checkers
- Internet Spades
Note: When you click on the download link, you'll be taken to separate page to download the program. There's a large ad on the page, with the download link (labeled “Download Windows 7 games for Windows 10”) directly below the ad.
The program file is too large to be uploaded to VirusTotal, but WOT rates the site as safe and the file scanned free of malware using multiple anti-virus programs on my Windows 8.1 system.
