    How do I re-install Windows Media Player for Windows 10 if I inadvertently uninstalled it?


    Some file had been corrupted within WMP so I decided to un-install it to then re-install it. But then I found out there is no way to "re-install" it separately. Tried following the standard procedures Microsoft outlines:

    1. Click the Start button, type features, and then select Turn Windows features on or off.
    2. Expand Media Features and see whether the Windows Media Player check box is selected. If it is, clear the check box.
    3. Click OK and then restart your PC. This will remove your current version of Windows Media Player.
    4. After your PC has restarted, repeat step 1.
    5. Expand Media Features and select the Windows Media Player check box.
    6. Click OK and then restart your PC. This will reinstall the latest version of Windows Media Player for your system Windows Media Player 12, with a few exceptions.

    But in my case...Media Features does not expand to show that WMP is even there at all. All I can do is check or un-check the Media Features box and nothing more. I have not tried unchecking the box entirely and then re-starting - then check it again and the re-start to see if WMP will "magically" return. Is this what I need to do - or - is there something else I am missing to get WMP back? Any help is appreciated!

    :)

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
