    Can't delete sample Music files from Windows Media Player 12

    I am unable to add any songs to wmp library due to not removing pre installed files from library. What are the ways available in order to remove that pre installed files. Need some suggestions to recover this matter. How to fix the issue as soon as possible?

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    - Reboot the PC.
    - Go to Start - Run, type services.msc , and press Enter. In Services, find the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service . If its status is Started , double-click the service and click Stop .
    - Go to Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in the search field, and press Enter. This folder will open up in Windows Explorer.
    - In this folder, rename the Media Player folder to something like Media Player old . If you can't see the folder, then it's probably hidden. Set Explorer to show hidden files and folders, and to show protected system files.
    - Start WMP, your library will have been reset and will be rebuilt.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    You need to take a few steps to set the Windows Media Player in shape again.

    Click Start > in the search box type Run, in the Run window type "services.msc" > Enter.
    "Services" > "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" > If its status is Started , double-click the service and click Stop .Tis will stop WMP shareing.
    Start > in the search box type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft > Enter. Windows Explorer will open.
    rename "Media Player" folder to "Media Player 0" .
    If folder is not found it`s probably hidden, . Set Explorer to unhide, and showing protected system files.
    Start WindowsMediaPlayer and it will not create any problem that you had encountered any further.

    Thanks.
