Have just opened 'games' from the start menu to have a quick go at solataire etc and the whole format has altered! There's a huge banner across the bottom with icons on (games I presume), the sound is different and just before I goes onto the choice of games screen there's a cartoon picture of a fairy tale type king with a white beard. Am not pleased. Don't think it's anything I've done so can only assume it's some automatic update. How can I get rid of it please?

Many of us don't have games built into Windows at all. So which version of Windows are you using? (It might help us to work out what has changed).

In the meantime, you can play online here:

(Select 'Klondike' for the standard version of solitaire)
Microsoft uses games partly for educational purposes: for example, Solitaire taught a generation to use the mouse to drag-and-drop. With Windows 8 and 10, Microsoft moved the games to the Windows Store. This should have taught users to log on and download them.

These Microsoft games are still free, but they now include adverts. This is almost always the case with free store-based apps whether on Windows, Android or Apple’s iOS. Companies don’t charge for the games, but they charge to remove advertisements or to add extra features. That’s what happens when people don’t want to pay for content.

Windows 10 Buenchico - Klondike is one of the variations I have but I'm not fond of it - prefer tri peaks - also don't want to play on line. Think it must be due to some update as I certainly haven't downloaded or changed anything.

The chair - they've taken ages to change things then cos have been playing for two years and for almost 12 months with windows 10. Wish they wouldn't do this.

There are plenty of downloadable freebies here:

(I've preselected 'card and board' games for that link. Use the 'categor filter on the left for lots more options)
AB's own games can be quite fun too:
