Microsoft Solitaire Collection is introduced as a replacement for the classic games that were part of Windows 7 and previous versions. The Microsoft Solitaire Collection app allows you to play five card games. Classic Solitaire, Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid, and TriPeaks card games are part of the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app in Windows 10.
Microsoft has released several updates to the Solitaire Collection app to iron out various types of issues, but at times, you might encounter problems while using the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app. If the app is not opening or hanging, you can reset the app to fix the issue.
Reset Microsoft Solitaire Collection
When you reset the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app, it will reset all data saved by Microsoft Solitaire Collection on your device. So, if you don’t want to reset the data, you should try fixing the issue without resetting the app.
Complete the given below directions to reset the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app in Windows 10.
Important: The ability to reset Windows 10 apps feature was introduced with the Anniversary update build 14372. So make sure that you’re running 14372 or later build of Windows 10 by typing Winver.exe in the Start menu search and then pressing the Enter key.
Step 1: Open the Settings app, click Apps and then click Apps & features.
Step 2: Look for the entry named Microsoft Solitaire Collection and then click on it.
Step 3: When you click on the app entry, you will see the Advanced options link. Click the Advanced options link.
Step 4: Click the Reset button and then click the Reset button again when you see the confirmation dialog. Once the reset job is done, you will see a check sign next to the Reset button.
Step 5: Try opening the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app now. It should open now and work without any issues.
If resetting the app didn’t help, you can reinstall the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app to fix the issue.

Same problem: How do I restore the difficulty options in MS Solitaire. Currently I am only playing “random” and the select difficulty panel in game options has disappeared
I am very glad if you answer me.

Thank you for this posting; it got me up and running while ensuring that I remained at an Expert 42 level.
Data is only mirrored in our ocs. The main data seems to be held online. I have tried all resets etc. and every time, the next time I open it, all the stats are downloaded from the cloud. SO THE QUESTION SHOULD BE (AS ONE VISITOR ASKED ABOVE, BUT WASN;T ANSWERED) HOW DO WE RESET MICROSOFT SOLITAIRE COLLECTION STATS IN TEH CLOUD ? I am looking in my online Microsoft Account, but so far haven’t found any reference to anything resembling this. Thanks for your help…. Ideas appreciated !
I have tried resetting it and also uninstalling and re installment this dosent work anyone found another way to get this app to work??

I found a way to reset the score on my windows ten solitaite. It is really simple. Use the “exployer” and search for “solitaire”. When it finds several sites, highlight the “Solitaire Settings” and from up above “open file location”. A few items will appear. Delete or remame the “SolitaireSettings” file and you are done!
Go to your start icon and set your preferences and play.
