    • The file extension changes to .solitairetheme8 if Microsoft Solitaire Collection is installed

    • I am experiencing this problem as well, and I know of several other who are, also.

      Over 5 months and no response (or fix) from Microsoft?

    • Can this issue be reopened? It is reproducible by having Microsoft Solitaire Collection installed when attempting to download Marcelo’s file. The issue has its roots in how Microsoft Edge determines what file extension to give downloads.

    • We are no longer able to repro this issue. If you are still seeing problems, can you provide additional information? Versioning information, screenshots of the difference, etc.

    • Hi Kelly. I attempted to download a .tgz file from (The linux install) but this showed up, regardless which file, as a .solitairetheme8 file extension.

      I uninstalled solitaire so it works now. Thanks Braxton for your idea of uninstalling solitaire.

    • I got the same problem on a Windows 10 with Chrome.
