    Windows Media Player randomly changes the volume


    I use WMP a lot while I'm working. It worked fine on my previous box, but I just got a new PC and installed Win10 Pro with all updates.

    When I play mp3s, WMP will randomly alter the volume. Sometimes it plays them at normal volume, sometimes they are really quiet. Often they are very loud, and altering the volume slider on WMP doesn't make any difference until you get down to about 8 or lower, at which point it suddenly becomes much quieter. Even when you get it right, the next track might play at a totally different volume.

    Anyone any ideas? WMP is pretty unusable at the moment. Thanks

    I would simply try resetting WMP to default settings.

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    I can't see how to do that. Any clues?

    Anyone able to help here? It's as bad as ever, if not worse.
