    Microsoft Solitaire Games


    How do I change the number of suits in the Microsoft Spider Solitaire game that's available in the Store for Win 8 RTM? I can't see any way to do it!

    Hi there
    use the XP version from an XP disk -- much better and the cards are readable too. You can change the card background as well.

    copy spider.exe from xp disk -- runs as is.

    cheers

    that's the top menu or whatever they call it

    Hit windows c or move your mouse to the top right or bottom right

    Click settings, then click game options
