    I was trying to kill some time today and I find that some of the Microsoft game apps load a little slow on the tablet, plus I just wanted to play a regular game of solitaire. I remembered that back when I first got Windows 8 I had taken the old Windows games from my XP installation so that I could play them on my W8.1 laptop. They aren't the best on there because they end up so tiny. But I thought I would give them a try in the tablet. They work great on this thing! (well, all except Minesweeper) They are quick to run because of the small file size and even though they are a little small, the card games work beautifully with the touch environment on the desktop. So if you happen to have an XP disc hanging around (I've read that with a little more work, you can also get them from Windows 7), I highly recommend trying it out if you miss the old games.
