    I know WMP 12 is not the default media player in Windows 10, and how to make WMP 12 the default.

    My concern is that since WMP 12 is not the default media player for Windows 10 Home that the upgrade would not carry over and preserve all of my numerous time consuming playlists and the underlying music files that have also gone through time consuming volume leveling processing for use in playlists. I have everything backed up on another drive in case this happens but do not know what or where all the underling files etc. that would have to be copied and pasted into Windows 10 WMP 12 to restore this function.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Windows 10 Upgrade 32-bit to 64-bit

    So, Windows 10 Upgrade is being rolled out worldwide, and I have 'reserved' my upgrade.

    Currently my computer is running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. I'm planning to 'upgrade' it to Windows 10 64-bit (via fresh install, of course).

    After reading many references, these will be the steps I'll do:

    1. Let the "Get Windows 10" app upgrade my OS to Windows 10 32-bit
    2. Note the activation key
    3. Download the Installation Media for Windows 10, but choosing 64-bit instead
    4. Perform a clean install
    5. Reactivate using the activation key in Step #2

    (Of course I'll backup my data first.)

    However, I still have some questions:

    1. On Windows 7, the activation key does not differ between 32- or 64-bit versions. Is it still so with Windows 10?
    2. Will I be able to download a different architecture on Step #3?
    3. Is there anything I need to prepare beforehand?

    Thank you for your assistance.
