I downloaded Windows 10 and now Hearts and Solitaire (which came on my Acer laptop) do not work. How do I get them back?

The applications are still present on the system folder. Windows 10 upgrade didn't delete anything. You need to apply a compatibility tweak. Go to the installation folder for the applications and then right click each one executable for the games. Go to Properties > Compatibility. Choose Windows 7/Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the list and tick the option that marks the application running as Administrator.

After this procedure, start the games again and it should work. There is no way to download the files again since they were bundled with your laptop.
