  1. wheel click on the mouse is working in this version… I did just change some key setting between right-click wheel click. then enjoy the game~

    1. Yes, IT will because this post only shows you that how to reset Microsoft Solitaire App not the Stats. If you would like to delete or remove all of your stats then, follow location (C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\UserData) (Replace Admin with your User account) then, If you are a guest, please go to Guest\Statistic and the same way if you have a Microsoft account then, delete “Statistic.ark”.

      1. I got lost on your path. never found “AppData” etc. I went to C:\Users\Janet —–and AppData was not listed. Nosed around a lot in the system files and anything else I could find on C: but never even found MicrosoftSolitaireCollection. I am running Windows10.

  2. Sorry, but this simply does not work. As soon as you reopen the collection it downloads your history and scores from online. THE SCORES ARE NOT HELD LOCALLY. So the question is, how do we reset the scores in one’s online Microsoft account ? Any ideas ?
