Windows 8 is not required to get this achievement, but you can get it faster if you have also have Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Win 8)

Klondike Medals
Ice Castle
Played the jack, queen, and king of any suit to the foundation with no moves in between.
When creating columns just be sure not to put the jack of a suit in the same column as the king of the same suit. That way you will have jack, queen and king in 3 different columns and will be able place them on the foundation in that order.
Mining for Gold
Use 5 or more cards in the waste pile before making another draw.
Go through the deck making a note of the cards then use undo back to a point where you have 5 in a row that you can place in columns or the foundation. For example if you have one empty column and a red 6 and black 10 on two of the other columns, then you can place a sequence from the waste pile of: red 9; black king (to empty column); black 5; black ace (to foundation); red queen. Getting 2 or 3 aces within 5 cards on the waste pile makes it easier. Also look for sequences in the waste pile, if you have a black 7 on a column look for a red 4, black 5 and red 6 within 5 cards on the waste pile. Starting a new game until some of the face-up cards can be placed on each other to reveal face-down cards also increases your chances.

Spider Medals
Entangled
Win a game of Spider Solitaire by first drawing all of the extra cards before making a move.
First you have to deal out the 5 stock piles. If there isn't a good range of face-up cards (no cards of a certain value for example) then start a new game. Then you want to focus on creating an empty column with your first or second completed run. This will give you some much needed maneuverability. Also keep an eye on which face-up cards you are going to run out of first. If you have the choice of turning over two or more face-down cards, pick one then use undo so you can look at the other ones and then decide which one would be most useful. Continue to keep your focus on creating more empty columns, since you won't be dealing any new rows you can leave them empty.

Pyramid Medals
Treasure Chamber
Remove cards from the pyramid using the top three cards of the waste pile.
Keep dealing cards from the stock pile until you have 3 on the waste pile that you can match with the face-up cards on the board. Kings count towards the 3, just remember to deal them onto the waste pile so you don't use them.

TriPeaks Medals
Peak Jumper
Cleared a board where your last three cards to be cleared were at the top of each peak.
Keep starting a new game until you see a board with a good sequence in the face-up cards. Run through the entire deck making a note of what each card is without tapping any face-up cards, and then use undo to reset the deck. That way you know what is coming up. Get down to the last card in each peak before clearing them.
Expedition Leader
Take 14 cards off the board in a row without using the stock pile.
At the start of the game get the longest sequence you can be choosing carefully the best card from the stock pile to start the sequence from. Then look at what cards are blocking other cards from being turned up. Undo the whole sequnce then run through the deck removing just the cards that blocked you last time. Start the sequence again and with any luck the cards that you couldn't turn up last time will be cards that help you keep the sequence going. On Windows 8 watch the video to get a wild card, this can be used to keep the sequence going.
