    How to disable Groove


    I went to default apps and chose Windows Media Player as my default for Music, but some playlists still want to open with Groove. Is there a way to disable Groove without it affecting my other apps?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mary

    Go to Settings > System > Default Apps > Music Player. Then select Windows Media Player. Next, scroll to the bottom of that page and click on "Choose defaults by file type." Select Windows Media Player to open the file type you want. I've selected my WMP to open mp3s and Wav files, the two main music files I play.
