Windows Media Player
Microsoft isn’t actively developing new features for Windows Media Player anymore. All that work is going toward Groove Music. That’s fine. It’s not as if Windows Media Player is missing a lot.
Windows Media Player still offers first-class music playback functionality. You can use its manual metadata editing tools to get every song in your library correctly labeled. It automatically scans only the folders that you tell it to for new music. There are no pop-ups asking you to add additional music services or cloud storage.
Lastly, it’s one of the few media players for Windows that still offers a way to copy and burn CDs. Windows Media Player is still in Windows 10. It’s also available in Windows Vista and Windows 7. You’ll need to add it to Windows XP.
