How to reset to the default settings for Windows Media Player

I ran the troubleshooting and now need to reset the Player multimedia default settings how to do this?

Advertisement

You can reset WMP the default settings in the Control Panel, programs, troubleshooting, WMP settings [WMP reset to default values]

If that did not solve the problem you're trying to fix then perform these two steps [they are the closest thing possible to uninstall then reinstall WMP & will actually provide a new installation of WMP]

1 unload WMP - Panel, programs and features, [left] turn on or off has Windows, multimedia features, clear box Windows Media Player, Yes, OK, restart the PC.

2 reload WMP - Panel, programs and features, [left] turn Windows features on or off, multimedia features, set the Windows Media Player box, Yes, OK, restart the PC.

  • How can I change the default startup screen in Media Player 9, to the media library

    After reformatting my HD and reinstall a bunch of stuff, I've updated the Media Player 9.  I am running XP Pro and want to know how I can change the default to the media library start screen?  Much nicer visually that always have to play a very, very long time.

    Also, I use to be able to view thumbnails of the Covers Album, regardless of the filter: IE. Artist, Album, Genre, etc.  Is always an option, because I can not find how to display otherwise only after you have selected an artist and if you select View Album Info.
    Thank you

  • How can I play the audio stream with Windows Media Player 11 AAC?

    Hello

    I want to listen to a live stream of a Shoutcast radio station which is in AAC format. I want to play with my Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP SP3. I still don't play. It seems that it is not supported by WMP 11, but if missing a codec, it should be automatically downloaded from Microsoft, since the option "Download codecs automatically" is checked in the options of WMP, and my security level in Internet Options is set by default.

    Y at - there a way or a codec plugin, so I can play the stream AAC on WMP 11?

    Thank you.

    Assem

    Orban AAC/aacPlus Plugin will allow WMP 11 to play AAC streams. Note that you have to replace the http stream with icyx URL part, so to read your example AAC stream, you must enter icyx://109.234.157.154:2012 in WMP, via file - Open URL... (press Ctrl + M, if you don't see the file menu). Tim Baets

    A .lnk file is a standard shortcut in Windows. The shortcuts are very often placed on the desktop, or in a control panel application such as Windows Start menu Launcher.

    Looks like that file Associations may be corrupted on your system.

  • Why the default settings of Windows backup include libraries of HomeGroupUser$?

    The default settings for Windows backup includes files under libraries of HomeGroupUser$. Why is it interesting?
    It's annoying because it causes a lot of similar errors / warnings every time. I wish, that it didn't because I always have to check the log to make sure this isn't something essential.
    Yes, I know that I can change the default settings and exclude libraries of HomeGroupUser$. But why is this value by default if it causes just these errors?

    Hello

    I would point out that the inclusion of the library item of $ HomeGroupUser is normal and is not related to the errors you found during execution of the backup.

    The mistakes are there because that is the items in errors has been deleted or moved to another location. You could exclude this default settings of Windows Backup location or view the steps in the link given below.
