    Needing Solitaire for Traditional Desktop

    So I was over having coffee with my grand parents this weekend and my grand father was telling me how he bought a new computer running Windows 8.1, I did a few things to make it more pleasant for him and his only request is could I find him a solitaire to install that is not a metro application. Could someone help me find one to install that is not a metro app that is preferably free and from a reputable website.
