Hi... By mistake, I uninstalled the app for Windows Solitaire Collection ... How do I get it back ? If I try to install the app it says it is already installed.

I`m on Windows 8.1 and if I type it in on my start page I can still play all the games...but where is the app ?

Please, do not laugh...Stop it !! Rolling Eyes

Oh dear, no one is laughing I am sure.
We have all done things like that, I have

It is not an unknown problem for certain apps or shortcuts to disappear on their own accord In Windows 8/8.1.

There are somethings you could try.

If you are being told it is already installed and you can still play it then obviously must be still on your computer.
Therefore you must have only uninstalled the shortcut.
Try right clicking on the C drive, scroll down to programme files open that folder locate the Microsoft Solitaire Collection folder and open it. Locate the shortcut (if it is there) right click and scroll down to send to and click on the option 'send to desktop as a shortcut.'

Another option (more drastic) is to open settings and see if the programme appears in the add/remove list.
You could then uninstall the whole programme and then re-install it.
You would of course lose any stored data.

There is one more option you may want to try.

It is a long time since I used W8.1 so I am going by memory.

I hope this has been of some help.
