Have you ever downloaded a new game and then spent more time trying to find it on your PC than you spent looking for the lost treasure or hidden bonus levels? With the Games Explorer in Windows 7, getting started with a game is so easy that even the n00biest of n00bies can do it.
When you enter Games in the search box, you'll be able to get to every medieval quest, every World War II mission, and every alien planet you've installed on your PC. Games Explorer also shows you each title's rating, your current stats, and any available updates.
But before you even peel the plastic off a new game, you’ll already have a solid library of Windows favorites: Hearts, Minesweeper, two kinds of Solitaire. You'll also find three online multiplayer games, so you can challenge your Internet-based friends to Backgammon, Checkers, and Spades.
