    nice upgrades to Microsoft Solitaire Collection!

    anyone try this lately? some nice improvements. especially love that they've added keyboard shortcuts to everything! H for hints. Ctrl+Z for undo. D for deal. etc. etc. That was the one flaw I saw compared to the old version of solitaire.

    Yes. I use it as a time killer. It was the first App I tried, when Windows 8 was made available. I often ponder why I read so many posts of requests for the return to the older versions.

    Via Xbox games? Yes, I have. Play it nearly each day. It's fabulous! Crisp, clean, clear, great sounds, and themes. Also create a theme option. 4 variations of the game. A lot of game options.

    Also play MS Mahjong. Another good one. I highly recommend MS Collections.

    BTW, the keyboard shortcuts are the last box in "How to play".

    Lol! Someone posted frustration the other day asking why the games weren't included with the OS anymore and why he or she had to "chase" them through the Store. I think these are far better quality than before and they're still free.

    If these kinds of "consumption" apps are a sign of what "production" apps will be, it will be a great improvement.

    Thanks for posting, dirtvu.
