  2. Windows Media Player is not in Default apps list in Windows 10

    I know, this question was asked many times, but there is still no answer that can actually solve the problem. There are steps to get the WMP in Windows Optional Features, install it if missing, etc. - I did all that, and now WMP runs and plays media files. However, there is no way in Windows 10 to set it as a Default App to play media file types.

    • Go to "Default apps" > "Music Player" > "Choose Default" - WMP is not there.
    • "Choose default apps by file type" > ".mp3" > "Choose a default" - WMP is not there.
    • "Set Defaults by app" > Windows Media Player is here! > select "Manage" > find ".mp3" > "Choose a default" - the only choice is "Look for an app in the Microsoft Store".

    After a long time spent searching I found this article: How to make any program the default on Windows 10 - gHacks Tech News

    Apparently after 1803 you are supposed to use hackers tools to set the Microsoft's own Windows Media Player as default. I used FileTypesMan as was suggested in the article, but when I try to change assignments for .mp3 files, I get "Error 5: Access is denied" from the tool. Also, if I right-click on an .mp3 file and select "Open with..." it still suggests me to go to Microsoft Store, open with Notepad, Paint, Word, but not Windows Media Player.

    What is the proper way to make WMP the default media player, so it shows up in the Default apps list?

    deleting podcasts from my mp3 on win 10 media player

    Hi Ernie,

    We realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with not able to delete files from mp3 player using Windows Media player. We will certainly help you.

    This issue might occur when the Mp3 file is broken or when it is not compatible with the Windows Media Player or other media players.

    Firstly, I would suggest you to open Media player and try to refresh the device and try deleting the songs.

    Method 2: Run Windows Media Player Troubleshooter.

    I suggest you to run Windows Media Player Troubleshooter. Follow the below steps to run Windows Media Player:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Settings.
    If the issue persists then follow the below method.

    For information about how to reset your device, see the documentation that came with your device.



    Method 2: If the above steps do not help, you may try to delete music files directly from the mp3 player, follow the steps below:

    To delete music files using the computer, follow these steps:

    1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer.

    2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection.

    3. Locate the folder where your music files are stored.
