Play the Checkers game in Windows 10 with the best apps by bringing back Internet Checkers.

Pretty much like Outlook Express, Microsoft has decided not to support Internet Checkers in Windows 10, . We’ve also talked about the disappearance of Windows Live Messenger in Windows 10, . is the first operating system from Microsoft to support touchscreen, so playing checkers can become a real fun activity. However, sadly, Microsoft has decided not to support Internet Checkers inside , Windows 10 or Windows RT, so we are being left with quite a few options to get it back.

What you need to understand is that Internet Checkers is GONE from Windows 10, by default and will never return, most likely. It’s pretty hard to imagine that Microsoft will bring it back, but who knows.

The single solution that we here, at WindowsReport have found, to play Internet Checkers in Windows 10, exactly as it was in Windows 7 is to download it from the BetaArchive forum, but we can’t guarantee that it will work for sure. You’ll just have to deal with the fact that it no longer works and try the following alternatives.

Personally, I can guarantee you these are some awesome checkers apps and you won’t regret a single minute having tried them. However, we will be working on a post to cover even more similar apps, so stay tuned.

Checkers alternatives to Internet Checkers in Windows 10

Thanks to the Microsoft Store that is constantly populated with more and more apps, we can find a lot of good apps, only if we search good enough. We did this for you and compiled a list with some of the best checker apps so you won’t be nostalgic for Internet Checkers. Here they are:

If you’re into puzzle and mind games, then most likely you’ll also enjoy our collection of chess apps for Windows 10. We hope that you’ll find the checkers apps for Windows 10, good enough and that you’ll be able to get over the lack of support for Internet Checkers. It might sound stupid for some, but I know how can one get “attached” to something, even if we’re talking about a game here.

  • Yeah, Win 10 lacking so many ways… instead of making a good win7 even better, they trashed so many good things and created a navigational nightmare: mine won’e even restore to a previous point (new pc), neither will it reset (in both cases goes thru all the motions and time and then announces can’t do it, nothing was changed”, …MS lacks COMMON SENSE ! and damn little support. Nothing but negatives and problems and incessant pw, bot verifies, codes, emails, texts, on and on.. .never mind you forget what you were doing in the first place after 30 min of this rubbish. They couldn’t even see the light that leaving checkers and chess on there would be a nice idea ?

  • I paid more for this computer with Windows 8.1 than I ever dreamed I would pay for a computer and did not realize it did not compare to Windows 7 with the games and Office software. Live and learn.

    • Yeah, Win 10 , sucks in so many ways… instead of making a good win7 even better, they trashed so many good things and created a navigational nightmare: mine won’e even restore to a previous point (new pc), neither will it reset (in both cases goes thru all the motions and time and then announces can’t do it, nothing was changed”, …MS lacks COMMON SENSE ! and damn little support. Nothing but negatives and problems and incessant pw, bot verifies, codes, emails, texts, on and on.. .never mind you forget what you were doing in the first place after 30 min of this rubbish.

  • Windows 8 does not give you Internet Checkers or Microsoft Word. I think it all stinks compared to Windows 7. Windows 8.1 does not hold Windows 7 a candle.
