Is there a way to remove /stop the ads from MS Solitaire games? It's annoying!

OS: Windows 10 with latest updates.

OR simply install the Windows 7 games into W10. Not offically supported but they install and work fine.


Number 1 unzip and install https://winaero.com/blog/get-windows-7-games-for-windows-10/

Linux has a lovely solitaire game called Aisleriot, which contains many more variants (over 40 last time I looked) than the Windows one ever did, and no ads whatsoever, of course.

Maybe someone can figure out how to compile it for Windows.... There was a really old Win32 version I found on the internet, but it was a bit buggy and didn't have the latest games.

Bit overkill for one game perhaps but you could always install Linux in a virtual machine to run solitaire :) For a while I had Linux mint set up that way but ditched it after the novelty of VMs wore off for me.
