    I do not think games like mine sweep or solitaire have many setting to speak of. I would guess (having honestly never played either) they would have some basic game option and modes. But I could not see much of a reason for them having anything along the lines of graphics settings or anything like that. I could be wrong I guess.

    the settings for the games are in the charms bar. remember that the charms bar is contextual. if solitaire is open, the settings will be for solitaire.

    make sure you check the settings for the desired game as the context changes. they did it this way so you didn't have to go through a ton of settings to find the ones you need. only show the ones that matter for what you want.

    so if you want the settings for spider solitaire, start a game of spider solitaire. then go to the charms bar > settings > game options.

    if you want the settings for klondike, start klondike, then go to charms > settings > game options.
