aw shit i wanna play windows pinball
Depending on what stage of my childhood, I would spend hours on:
See the left part? That would lead to the word processor on DeskMate, which I used from about 1987-1988 until we got a Sensation in the 1990’s, where I learned to use Microsoft Works.
In the years we had this OS, instead of using Paint, I would use DRAW, which is on the 2nd row there. (BTW – DeskMate had the ability to let you change colors around, which even as a little kid, I would do.)
I would also press the F3 button and go to other programs. Or I would use a booting disk so that I could get on DOS and get to Carmen Sandiego or Writer (or maybe it was Reader) Rabbit to play or learn. I would also use this home design program because, at one point, I was obsessive about that.
Oooh, and I would play Frogger and Pac-Man.
When we got the Sensation, I started playing Minesweep regularly. (I’d max out the tiles, but only have 10 mines, which didn’t completely guarantee a win every single time.) I also was absolutely obsessed with Commander Keen. It even came with its own version on Pong.
I also played solitaire on the computer, which I blame on my first therapist. She played solitaire during every session I had, but the version she played was not on the computer. I found it on the computer one day and started playing it regularly.
