    10532 Has removed windows media player and other things

    I installed 10532 and came up short without Windows Media Player (WMP). I also cannot change my cursor to what I had. I use the pencil cursor for fine cut and paste work. WMP worked well for me in certain aspects and I avoid third party software at all cost. I have right clicked on a video and it's not there. I have opened all programs and it's not here and I have done a total computer search the manual way and it's just gone.
    I don't know if it is available as a download and quite frankly don't know what version came in Windows 10.
    Please help, I am desperate and don't really have the time for a rollback or reinstall, my work is piling up by the hour.
    Thank you all for the times you have already "pulled my back pockets out of the fire"

    I have Windows Media Player, although I really don't use it.

    Go to the "all menu list" and click on "Windows accessories" that is where I found it. . .Good Luck. . .:)
