Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to download Minesweeper on Windows 8 computers.
Click on the lower-left corner of the screen to go to the Start menu.
From here, click the Store icon.
It is green with a white shopping bag on it.
If it isn't in the Start menu, click the arrow button in the lower-left corner of the screen.
Locate and click "Store".
In our demonstration, it is near the top of the first column from the right.
Click in the search bar at the top right-hand corner of the screen to get a cursor.
Type "minesweeper" and hit the enter or return key on the keyboard, or click the magnifying glass icon on the far right side of the search bar.
When the "Results" page loads, the first thing that will appear is "Microsoft Minesweeper". This is the newest version for Windows.
Click on "Microsoft Minesweeper".
This will load the game's Store page. At the top of the page, beneath the title "Microsoft Minesweeper", there is a green button that says "Install" in white letters.
Click the "Install" button.
Wait for the installation to finish.
We will see green dots moving across the top of the screen to indicate that the game is installing. The time that it needs to install depends on the speed of the Internet and computer.
Read the confirmation of installation.
Where the "Install" button used to be, it says "This app is installed on this PC." There is also a green confirmation box in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Go to the desktop by clicking on the upper-left corner of the screen.
Click the lower-left corner of the screen to go to the Start menu.
Click the downward-pointing arrow icon in the lower-left corner of the start menu.
Find Microsoft Minesweeper.
It is marked "NEW". In our demonstration, it is filed under "Today" because we have sorted the "Apps" page "by date installed", which we can change by clicking the arrow next to those words at the top of the screen. Sorting this menu can make an app easier to find.
This concludes our tutorial on how to download and install Minesweeper on Windows 8 computers.
