Various Cheats and Hints
Fast Card Sorting
When you have many cards on the playing table that you wish to put into one of the 4 slots above, there is a quicker way of doing so instead of dragging each one at a time. Simply right-click in an empty area and all the cards on the current board that can be moved to the top section, will be automatically moved. Neat trick for quickly sorting the stacks during the game.
Draw single cards in a Draw Three game
Everytime you flip the top stack of cards, hold down CTRL-ALT-SHIFT and instead of flipping three card you only flip one card. This way you can draw single cards but still have the higher score of a ''Draw Three'' game.
This code should be entered during a normal game:
Alt+Shift+2 - Instant Win
In the Windows XP version of solitaire, draw from the deck at least twice. Hold control and drag a card down from the deck. Click the "A" key and then let go of the left mouse key. You will get 10 points for this. Continue doing this for infinite points!
To do this trick, finish a game of solitaire with the time bonus option on. The cards will start bouncing. Click on the solitaire screen and the play again box will pop up. Select no, so the solitaire screen is just blank green. Use the instant win cheat (Alt+Shift+2) and you will recieve the time bonus you got last game will be added to your last game's score. For example, if your time bonus was 5000, and your final score was 6000, after using this glitch, you will have a score of 11000. This glitch can be used as many times as you want.
Move a card to an illegal position
Use the left mouse button and drag a card onto any legal position, just as you normally would, but do not let go of the left mouse button. While holding the card over the position, hit the Escape key once, then release the left mouse button. Now left click once on any face-up card at all and it will teleport to that position. You may also use the space bar and directional arrows to do this, however the final click to teleport the card must still be done with the left mouse button.
