One question that I am frequently asked by users in a corporate environment is how to locate Windows Media Center on Windows 10 and why it was not enabled by default.
Regular users don’t seem to mind as much that Windows Media Center is disabled (or missing) on Windows 10 as they tend to want to have VLC installed instead since the VLC program is much better at streaming due to the included codecs. Corporate users, however, do not own their computer systems so they are limited in what they can install especially if the IT Department has not placed them in the local administrator group so that they can install or remove programs freely.
In earlier releases of the Windows Operating System, it was included but was later removed. Using an installer, you could get it working again but in 2020 builds on Windows 10, the installer and program are now broken as shown below. To fix it, download and use Windows Media Center 8.8.5 and later as it is also compatible with upcoming release of Windows 11.
