    Do you want to restore the Windows lonely on a PC equipped with Windows 10Windows 8 / 8.1? Nothing easier. As I told you at the beginning, just download Microsoft Solitaire Collection, or the collection of solitaires that Microsoft itself has made available directly on the Microsoft Store and it's done. The game in question includes five different solitaire games: Klondike, FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks and Pyramid.



    Unlike the "historical" variant of solitaire, Microsoft Solitaire also offers challenges on a daily basis that involve the achievement of various objectives to earn coins and trophies. It can be used for free, but eventually it is also available in a paid variant (which costs € 1,99 / month or € 14,99 / year) that does not include advertisements and increases the number of coins available in the challenges.

    To download the solitaire on your computer, connect to the section dedicated to it on the Microsoft Store online, pigia sul pulsating Get and, once the window of the Microsoft Storeclick on your button Install, then log in to yours if necessary Microsoft account (if you don't already have one, you can fix it right away by reading my guide focused on how to create a Microsoft account).

    When installation is complete, start Microsoft Solitaire Collection by selecting its icon from the Start menu (on Windows 10) or from the Start Screen (on Windows 8 / 8.1), by clicking on the button with the windows flag located at the bottom left of the taskbar.


    In the window that opens, then choose the type of solitaire you want to try your hand at (eg. Klondike o Spider), by clicking on the relevant button next to the section Matches (top), and start playing. By selecting the item Challenges from the initial menu of the game, it is also possible to try, as I mentioned in the previous lines, in timed challenges against other online users.


    If, on the other hand, you want to intervene on the game settings, press the button with the three lines horizontally at the top left and, from the menu that appears, click on the item options. I also point out the possibility of changing the appearance of the solitaire by going to the section Temi, always accessible from the same menu.

    Alternative Windows Solitaire

    The solitaire made available directly by Microsoft has not convinced you in a particular way or in any case you are looking for valid ones alternative to the latter? Then take a look at the titles of third-party developers belonging to the same category that I have reported to you below. I'm sure you'll be able to find at least one that can grab your attention.

    123 Free Solitaire

    If you prefer to play a purely classic solitaire in terms of interface, don't think twice and install 123 Free Solitaire: This is a free collection of solitaire games including Klondike, Diplomat, Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid and other popular card games running without the slightest problem on all versions of Windows. Note that it is eventually available in a paid variant (costs $ 19,95), which includes some extra features.

    Another nice Windows Solitaire that is definitely worth a try is Solitaire 3D, which includes some of the card games most loved by users around the world: Klondike, Spider, Pyramid, Frog and many more.

    World of Solitaire

    The first of the online solutions that I suggest you consider is World of Solitaire. It offers a wide range of solitaire games, including Klondike, Spider, FreeCell Pyramid, all playable for free and without having to register (creating an account is only useful for counting points and keeping preferences in memory). Note that the site is based on technology HTML5, which means it works flawlessly with any browser and any operating system (including Windows, of course) without the need for Flash Player, Java or other plugins.

    To start playing, just go to the World of Solitaire website. The solitaire proposed by default is the Klondike. If you want to select a different one, just click the button Choose Partita located at the top left, click on the name of the game you want to start and press the button Play, to kick off a new game with your chosen solitaire game.

    To adjust the settings and change the appearance of the solitaire use, instead, the items attached to the window which you can access by clicking on the button options at the top right.

    Another nice online solitaire that I invite you to try is Net Solitaire. It includes Klondike, Spider, Pyramid, FreeCell and many others, all playable at no cost and without having to register. It doesn't include any kind of options but it has a very nice user interface. Again, the site is based on HTML5 technology and therefore does not require external plugins to function.

    Google Solitaire

    Did you know that by typing special keywords in the bar of Google Is it possible to play solitaire, the Klondike to be precise, directly from the web browser and, above all, directly from the famous search engine? No? Well, now you know. If the thing interests you, I'll explain immediately how to proceed.

    First, visit the Google home page, then type in the term solitary or the words solitaire game in the search bar located in the center and press the button Submit on the computer keyboard. On the search results page that will be shown to you at this point, click on the item Click to play that you find attached to the rectangle with the preview of the solitaire placed at the top.
