    Re: Launching media center in Windows 8

    Hi.
    Following are the step-by-step instructions to add Windows Media Center to Windows 8:
    1. First move your mouse cursor to top-right corner to access new Charms bar. Now click on "Search" item present in Charms bar.
    2. Now type Add features in search box and click on "Settings" link given in right-sidebar and you'll see "Add features to Windows 8" entry in search results.

    3. Click on "Add features to Windows 8" entry and it'll ask for a product key, click on "I already have a product key" option.
    PS: Alternatively, you can directly launch "Add features to Windows8" window by runningWindowsAnytimeUpgradeui command in RUN box. Press Win+R keys together to launch RUN box and then type the command.
    4. Now enter product key
    5. Click on Next button and select the checkbox "I accept the license terms" and click on "Add features" button.
    6. That's it. Windows 8 will start installing Windows Media Center in your system. It'll require a restart and you'll be able to enjoy Windows Media Center in Windows 8. A new tile of Windows Media Center will also be added to Start Screen.

    Thank you.
