Where is FreeCell in Windows 8?
Since the very first copy of Windows, there have been some default games that came with each copy of Windows. Games like Solitaire, Minesweeper, and eventually FreeCell. But Windows 8 doesn’t come with any games. Even if you upgrade your computer from Windows 7, the default Windows games are removed. Does Windows 8 provide any free games?
Yes, there are games you can get with Windows, but they don’t come preinstalled. You need to go and get them yourself. I imagine this was done to help companies that want to block the installing of games on their systems.
To get FreeCell, go to the Start Screen and type ‘FreeCell’, and then click on Store icon. One of the results should be the “Microsoft Solitaire Collection”. Download this “app” and you’ll see that it contains five single player card games and one of them is FreeCell. The other games are: Solitaire, Klondike, Spider Solitaire, TriPeaks and Pyramid.
