I'm just not a software guy. If the game isn't tweaked by the maker, there's no way I'm going to get it to run (other than utilities like Compatibility Mode). One really annoying trap I've fallen into in the past is the damned "patch" for a new version of Windows. Yup, they have a patch and everyone that knows a bit about programming can apply that patch, but when a stupid guy like me downloads it I find that the game has 14 damned sub-folders and of course I have no idea which one to dump the patch in. Further, I don't know if I'm supposed to "dump" it in rather than apply it in some certain way, And, I don't know what happens if I put that bit of code in the wrong folder. Will it mess up something else? You can never get a clear answer from the little game company beyond "download the patch." There is no customer service with gaming software. If it doesn't work, you just burned fifty bucks. That's the level I'm at with software... So, anyhoo, I will look at some of your suggestions above (and if they are clearly labeled Win 10 compatible), download some of the free ones first and see what challenges I run into. I'll try some of the paid games if I don't run into too many problems with the free ones. Thank you all for your suggestions. I'll report back and let you know how it goes. .
