    Groove Music Ignores Tagging & Metadata


    Windows 10's Groove Music app ignores every modification I make to albums downloaded from the Microsoft Store. Whether it's song/album titles or cover art, Groove continues to display the music as it was before my changes, while other media players have no problems displaying it with the correct information.

    I am not signed into my Microsoft account, and automatic retrieval is disabled. The problem continues to occur even after I've reinstalled the application.

    All advice greatly appreciated.

    I've tried just about everything to get Groove to recognize tags better, but it's just too basic a media player and fails pitifully on this point.
    I really like the sound from Groove, but just use it when I play shuffle on all tracks in the library.
    On of our forum mods(thanks @Barman58 ) introduced me to MediaMonkey for tagging, worked great, it even fixed up my Windows Media Player library, but now I prefer to use MediaMonkey for my music.

    I have sent Microsoft Feedback(here is some of mine):

    And I have upvoted other users feedback in respect to this, I can only recommend you do the same, as: "The squeaky hinge gets the oil".
