When using Windows Media Player on Windows 11, it appears to be very unstable, with issues regarding Vizualisations failing to work after minimize for a few minutes, to just basic issues with the app itself; and it is not the only traditional style windows app with this issue. The Library Switch Button is fully scaled when in the library, to select a file, but switch to now playing and it virtually disappears, and I have my desktop pc connected to my 43" 4k smart tv, at recomended settings, system fully updated, all drivers up to date, with proper drivers installed. This issue was not present in windows 10. Microsoft needs an entire overhaul of the Windows Media Player UI, to be more compatible with Windows 11, also Media Player Skins, crash the Player.
