    Music in Windows 7 Media Player transferred to Windows 10 Player ?

    I have a lot of music saved into Windows Media Player on Windows 7. I am aware that the new Windows 10
    Upgrade will not have Windows Media Player, but that another player will either come within the Upgrade or
    a new music player is available. So once I upgrade from 7 to 10, how do I get all of my music into this new
    upgrade? Thanks.

    As far as I know its only Windows Media Centre that is being removed
    R.I.P., Windows Media Center
    Windows Media Player is staying

    If you do decide to use the new media player, it will just pick up your music the same as WMP did, nothing extra to do

    Thanks a lot for the quick and informative answer - never used Media Centre but I'm
    glad the player is staying.
