    Is WMP included in Win10?


    Windows Media Player, not Windows Media Center. Pretty sure it is but can someone confirm it is included and will it still play DVDs? Is the option still in auto play for WMP be the default player? And to associate it for a specific file type as the player? I know about VLC, etc. but I like WMP.

    Hello Bru,

    Yep, WMP is still included in Windows 10, but the Groove Music app is the default now.

    %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe

    You might also look at this to see if it may help.

    Hmmm, still a bit confused. WMP is included and as in the link I posted it can be opened and even pinned. But now there is a new default app, Groove Music player. Can WMP be selected as default or can file extensions be associated with it? In other words how would one use WMP in place of Groove? I have to think since it is included it can be used.

    Yep, you can make either one the default app.
