  • Found the (current) solution. There is a statistics file you need to delete. Here is where it is located in Windows 10 Anniversary Edition:

    C:Users[User]AppDataLocalPackagesMicrosoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_8wekyb3d8bbweLocalStateUserDataGuestStatistic

    Delete Statistic.ark in that folder.

    Substitute your login name for the [User] reference.

    If you don’t login as “Guest”, substitute your Microsoft user name there. If you can’t do that easily, just go as far as User Data, look for your login name there, then go into that folder and then the Statistic folder.

    Have at it!

  • My Windows 10 Solitaire Collection crashes. It loads until I select the game to play in the challenge, and just when you think it’s opening, it completely vanishes. Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times and it still happens. No changes have been made to my virus protection settings, so I can’t understand why it’s happening. None of my other Windows 10 games do this. Any way to fix it?
