    Win 7 Games to Win 8


    Recently got win 8 pro 64bit
    searched for solutions to get win 7 games into win 8 (freecell chess titans etc)
    found a lot of old posts but the solutions don't seem to work today.
    I tried the free metro apps but would prefer the desktop stuff.
    Any ideas?

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games copy the contents to the Windows 8 computer.

    Or live with the metro versions
