Description

The Microsoft Windows 7 operating system was originally released in several "editions" including Home Premium, Ultimate and Professional. The installation includes games in addition to the functionalities of the OS. Not available elsewhere as stand-alone games, they are considered to be part of a compilation.

Many of the games are reiterations of those included with previous Windows versions but with graphics, sound and options upgrades similar to the ones in Windows Vista. Purble Place is the only game targetted for children and was first introduced in Vista. The two Titans, Chess and Mahjong, were introduced in the Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition. The Internet games from Windows XP (Backgammon, Checkers and Spades) are back but have been revamped as well. Hearts, however, is offline only (titled The Microsoft Hearts Network in XP).

The games feature sounds appropriate for each and most have separate options and appearance screens to customize them.

The Windows 7 Home Premium Edition includes these games:
  • Chess Titans
  • FreeCell
  • Hearts
  • Internet Backgammon
  • Internet Checkers
  • Internet Spades
  • Mahjong Titans
  • Minesweeper
  • Purble Place
  • Solitaire
  • Spider Solitaire
