Here is the new Solitaire Collection found in Windows 10 10061 preview build

The virtual version of the classic Solitaire PC card game from Microsoft has returned as a free bundled feature in the new Windows 10 10061 preview build.

The game was previously included in older versions of Windows but was removed from Windows 8 in 2012, although Microsoft did offer a version of Solitaire as a free-to-play app in the Windows Store, complete with Xbox Live support. That same game was released for Windows Phone devices in 2013.

While the addition of Solitaire to Windows 10 is not as big of a deal as, say, the return of the Start menu, it does show that Microsoft wants people who abandoned Windows 8 to know that many of the features that were ditched for that OS are returning.
