Don’t quit playing games with Windows® 7
Windows 7, no doubt, serves as an excellent gaming platform for the games freak. For people who have not really enjoyed the gaming experience with Windows XP and Windows Vista, here lies a chance.
Broadly, the games fall into three categories:
- The board games: Board games are Chess Titans, Mahjong Titans, and Minesweeper.
- The card games: Card games are FreeCell, Hearts, Solitaire, and Spider Solitaire.
- The Internet games: Internet games are Backgammon, Checkers, and Spades. The Internet games are board or card games that you play online against opponents around the globe. Internet games require an Internet connection.
To start with gaming controls in the new Windows 7, you will have to open the Games window. All you have to do is, select Start Games. To play any of the games packed with Windows 7, double-click on the game icon or right-click on the icon and then take the option to Play from its shortcut menu.
For a user with the Classic menu displayed in the Games window, one can also launch the game chosen from the window by choosing the option to File Play. When a game in the Games window is selected in Windows 7, the Details pane in the bottom of the Games window demonstrates not only the usual information about the game’s publisher and maker, but also the date when the game was last played. Even the Preview pane on the right side of the Games window showcases the game’s rating.
Each Windows 7 Game has a Help option in the top menu. The help information tells about options in each game application and does not have help with rules, play or strategy. You can start with a game you already know how to play.
You can find other interesting games which you can play online or you can install on your computer. Along with tradition-based games, such as those in Windows 7, all of the new games exist to take you in a virtual world.
