    As far as I can see, if you run VLC and use it to open the Music folder it plays everything it can find (including in subfolders) but in alphabetical order, not a random shuffle. Is there an option I've missed?

    Groove Music does at least offer the same 'random' playback as the old Media Player (which it was designed to replace).
    ??? Shuffle Playlist - addons.videolan.org ???

    It's built in. Shuffle and random.

    Ok! That was my 1 cents worth of knowledge of VLC, although I do love it!

    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    Groove & VLC are leading options as mentioned above. You might also consider iTunes from Apple particularly if you have Apple devices you want to synch and backup.
