The driver is restarted after blinking and beeping. To be on the safe side, you can also update drivers or reset display adapters in Windows 10 to ensure that outdated versions are not causing this problem.

10. Disable virus protection

Sometimes Windows Defender and its firewall can prevent Microsoft Solitaire Collection from working properly. If you get a false flag restriction, you should check if the game works after disabling Windows Defender and the firewall.

Open Control Panel from the Cortana search box, as shown below.

alt= data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/1616958030_128_What-To-Do-When-Microsoft-Solitaire-Collection-Is-Not-Working.png />Open the Control Panel

After clicking this option, disable the selectors for real-time protection, cloud delivery protection, automatic scanning, and tamper protection.

Try running Microsoft Solitaire Collection after disabling Windows Defender and Firewall to see if it works. To do this, you must also disable your third-party antivirus program.

11. Move the game files to the new folder

If the game path is damaged, you may not be able to run the MSN Solitaire collection. In this case, you should move the game folders to another location and refresh the computer before trying to restart the game.

First, create a new folder on the drive of your choice; make sure this new folder is not in the same path as the built-in folder used to store game files. Call this folder Games.

Then call the following path to the game’s built-in folder, where all files are stored.

C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games

Copy all the files in this folder and paste them into the new Games folder.

When you have copied all the necessary files, restart your computer and try to run Solitaire.

12. Free play

If the Windows 10 operating system suffers from hiccups, it may not be able to distinguish between enabled and disabled features on the PC. This may be one of the reasons why Microsoft Solitaire Collection is not working.

To re-enable the game function, open the Run window by pressing Win + R and type appwiz.cpl in the address bar; click OK to run the command.

alt=Execute this command data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/1616958035_933_What-To-Do-When-Microsoft-Solitaire-Collection-Is-Not-Working.png />Execute this command

Now find the folder called Games and uncheck the box next to it. This will disable all games on your computer. Press OK key to confirm the changes.

Once Windows has made the necessary changes, restart your computer. After rebooting, go back to the Games box and check it; select OK to save your changes.

Once you have made all the settings, you will be asked to restart the computer; if not, you can always do that and then check if the game problem is solved.

13. MicrosoftSolitaire Collection New Registration

Re-recording the game is another easy way to restore the game if the previous methods don’t work. To do this, you need to open Windows PowerShell.

Open Windows PowerShell from the Start menu search bar in administrator mode. Then type the following command and press Enter.

Get-AppxPackage -allusers *MicrosoftSolitaireCollection* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml}.

alt=Execute this command data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/1616958037_309_What-To-Do-When-Microsoft-Solitaire-Collection-Is-Not-Working.png />Execute this command

After running the command, check that the Solitaire collection is working properly.

14. Disabling the taskbar auto-hide feature

When the auto-hide feature is enabled, Microsoft Solitaire will not open on your computer. The reason seems strange and irrelevant. However, this solution has helped many users get rid of the problem.

First, close all applications on the desktop and right-click on the taskbar. Then select Taskbar Options from the drop-down menu.

alt=Task Bar Options Selection data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/1616958038_308_What-To-Do-When-Microsoft-Solitaire-Collection-Is-Not-Working.png />Task Bar Options Selection

Cap: Disable the option

Now check if the taskbar is automatically hidden after this step. The Microsoft Solitaire collection should ideally follow this method.

15. Display scale

Your computer’s scaling and layout settings may also affect your MSN Solitaire collection. Therefore, the default value should be changed and increased.

Press the Windows key + I key combination to open the Settings window. Select the system from the options provided.

Now check if the game is working properly.

A clean boot process can detect problems with background processes. Only files and folders that are important and necessary for the operation of the computer are used. If you reboot, you can identify background processes that may be interfering with the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

Open the Run window, type msconfig and click OK. After this step, the system configuration screen appears.

alt=Open System Configuration data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/1616958042_519_What-To-Do-When-Microsoft-Solitaire-Collection-Is-Not-Working.png />Open System Configuration
