How do I install Freecell on Windows 8?

Henry November 15, 2014

I would like to play my Windows 7 version of Freecell on my Windows 8 computer.

I read an article about how you moved Windows XP games to Windows 8. Have you tried that same method to move Windows 7 Freecell to Windows 8?

Or is there another tried and true method to get my beloved Windows 7 Freecell program onto my much hated Windows 8 computer?

    Thanks for the answers, but are really not the solution to the problem I am trying to solve. The Freecell that comes from the App Store is not one I particularly like. It might be my learning curve, but I can't figure out how to access it from the desktop (I hate looking at the Start screen).

    While the Freecell website is nice to have around, it's just not the same as having Freecell on my machine.

    Thanks for taking an interest, Jan and Ben. I really do appreciate you taking the time and making the effort to aid a fellow traveler.

    Alternatively, you can just play Freecell on a website. Ones like are free and should more than suffice for your needs!

    You can get Freecell as part of the Microsoft Solitaire Collection on the App store, no 'hacking' required.
