Windows 8 was released with major changes in the UI and introduces the new Start Screen that displays the applications in the form of tiles. But, one big change in Windows 8 is that there is no longer the classic Windows 7 games such Cards, Solitaire and others and there is not a start menu where we can get these. But, that does'nt mean you can't get them back. Here I will show you how to restore the classic games that exist in Windows 7 but not in Windows 8. You need to use some steps to do this. Here are the steps to be followed. Step 1 First you need to copy all the games to some removable drive such as Pen Drive. So, navigate to "C:\Program Files\" and copy the Microsoft Games folder from there into the removable drive or disk. Step 2 Now, go down to the "C:\Windows\System32\" location on your Windows 7 and copy the .dll files of the games as well. Step 3 Now go to the Windows 8 system and navigate to the location at "C:\Program Files\" and paste the Microsoft Games folder into it. Step 4 Paste all the .dll files in the Microsoft Games folder. Now, your work is done. Note: These .dlls encouter the problem of versioning. Therefore you need to perform patch out these properly. You are then able to enjoy the Windows 7 classic games in Windows 8 too.
