    Windows 10 Media Streaming


    I cannot find the Control Panel option to turn on Media Streaming. I have gone into the advanced settings but the option is just not there......

    This is all the screen shows....no Streaming option

    I have the latest Win10 ver 1511, build 10586.14 which came out a couple of weeks ago.

    Anyone know what stupid thing I have missed?

    Wrong.

    Groove has not replaced WMP, it is of course available in Windows 10 exactly as in previous versions of Windows. Extract from Windows 10 Start Menu:

    It is not in my list - I think I uninstalled it after I upgraded to Win10 as I never used it. I have had no success in finding a download, even from MSoft download site - it just says it is part of the Win10 clean install or upgrade.........

    Windows Media Player is a native Windows 10 application, built-in in every edition of Windows 10 except the N and KN editions (Home N & KN, Pro N & KN, Education N & KN, Enterprise N & KN).

    If you have disabled / removed the WMP, you can enable it again from Programs and Features:

    If you are running an N or KN edition, or if you have completely removed the WMP from any other edition, you can download and install Windows Media Feature Pack (includes WMP) here: Download Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10 from Official Microsoft Download Center
