    ‘Privacy’ tab missing from ‘Tools’ menu with Windows Media Player

    Few weeks back, I have installed Windows Media Player into my PC running on Windows Vista. Now when I got into its ‘Tools’ menu, I could not find the ‘Privacy’ tab. How to locate it?

    Uninstall the Windows Media Player application with Windows Features and re-install it. Go to the left part of the desktop for that and make a single press on ‘Start’ button. When the start menu becomes visible on the screen, look for the search field. Type Turn Windows Features on or off into that field. You can then find ‘Turn Windows Features on or off’ option among the search results appears on the start menu. Click on that option and locate the ‘Media Features’ option. Uncheck the checkbox next to this option with a single click. Then, restart the system for uninstalling Windows Media Player. Once the system re-boots into the desktop, check the ‘Media Features’ option again. Restart the PC afterwards for installing the Windows Media Player again.
