No idea what version of Windows 10 I've been updated to but just checked and I can't see them in start-up menu either.

Are they listed when you click on Windows Icon (botton left)?

Maybe just not Pinned to Start...

They are not pinned or tucked anywhere. When I do a search it tells me the file is empty and then opens up Google Chrome so I can buy them! They were all neatly in the windows start menu.

I still use the old Windows 7 games.

You can download the installer from https://winaero.com/blog/get-windows-7-games-for-windows-10/

I know this to be a clean version, and it works in the latest Win10.

Keep hold of the installer though, because when the next version of Windows gets pushed at you in a couple of months, they will disappear again - files get placed in C:\WINDOWS (as they did in Win7), and Microsoft's installer doesn't keep them for you. You have to head to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, uninstall the remnants, then run the installer again to put them back. It keeps your high scores though.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
