How to Get Back Classic Minesweeper & Solitaire for Free

In this tutorial, I’ll show you two ways to get your favorite Windows games back on Windows 10 for free.
Since Microsoft decided to turn Minesweeper and the Solitaire Suite into freemium apps, there is no built-in way to get ad-free game play for free anymore. Instead of paying the $10 a year for something that was once free, I have outlined 2 ways for porting over the Windows 7 versions to Windows 10.
The first is a automated installation with pre-modified files, and the second uses game files from an already existing Windows 7 machine using a hex editor to make them compatible with Windows 10.
Both ways give you the same results, so use the one that is most appropriate for your skill level. For downloads and more information, check out the full tutorial over on Gadget Hacks.
