    Howdy.

    Win 3.x,Win95,98, Ram 8 MB,Graka from 256 colors

    Win 98,ME,XP,96 MB Ram,Pentium III

  2. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game setup file and click on
            ‘properties’.

          • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
            ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
     
  3. When I updated to windows 10 my old 101 puzzle and logic games are not working

    • How did you installed these games on your Computer? Is it through CD/DVD or Windows Store?

    old email addresses

    Thank you for updating me HA.111

    Here is the step to remove that old email address.

    Start typing an email address into the “To” field. As soon as you see the old email address being recommended as one of the potential candidates, use the down arrow key to scroll through the list of suggestions. Once you highlight the old email address, type
    the delete key. In many cases, this will actually remove the entry not only from the current list of suggestions but from future suggestions as well. You may even find that as you mouse over the drop-down list the highlighted item will have an “x” to explicitly
    allow you to delete it.

    Just do this step and your good to go.

    Continue to have an escellent day HA.111

    Best regards,
