Anyone know a simple good free download for spider solitare.Need This to relax after working with window 8 all day.I had a good one with window 7 but I can't remember how I got it.
Goldy ~ In Win. 7...Click on "Start" > "All Programs" and scroll through the list. "Games" should be about halfway down the list.
Click on "Games" and Spider Solitaire will be listed therein. As a matter of fact, I was on my way there when I saw your question.
Anne I have window 8.I know the game in window7.I played it for years.There is no solitare in window 8.I had to give up a lot of good stuff when I swicthed over.
Sorry, Goldy. I didn't realize your were using Win 8. Try the download at the Cnet link below. And...if that doesn't meet your needs...just enter "Spider Solitaire" at Google and you should see a wide selection.
Here is a link that might be useful: Spider Solitaire
Gotta be super careful downloading those card games cause they'll load you up with unwanted stuff - toolbars etc. Just downloading may result in babylon and funmode being installed. Before you even start the game installation. !!!!!
I hated the W7 games so transferred the XP games to W7 this way which should work for 7 to 8:
find a friend with XP or 7 if you don't have one yersef.
Contol panel > folder options > check 'show hidden folders'
navigate to C:\Windows\System32
Copy the following files to a USB memory stick, or CD (whatever means you have to move files):
Create a Desktop Folder and paste all that into that folder
(do not put it in the Windows\system32 folder)
Launch the games from there or make a desktop shortcut.
Uncheck 'show hidden folders'
Got my game on.Thanks again .
