Windows Media Player for Windows 11 Pro - Cannot Uninstall KB3010081

Copper Contributor

Hi ,

I am using Windows 11 Pro. I had Windows Media Player Legacy version.

In trying to have the latest version of WMP (somehow got the impression that there is one) ,

I installed KB3010081 update manually -----  PLEASE DO NOT install this.. 

It did nothing.


Now I want to uninstall it and I cannot, as it is supposed to be a "Quality Update".


to sum it  -

Want to

 ---1. uninstall KB3010081 update.

 --- 2. install the latest Windows Media Player.


So if anyone can let me know on the above 2 will appreciate.

You can go to the Microsoft Store and check for updates, it should automatically install the new Media App!
I too have the Windows Media Player Legacy version installed because it is much more flexible than the new media player. Windows 11 up date has caused Windows Media Player Legacy version to now close and reopen in the default size, tiny, each time you click on a different file in the same folder. In the past it did not do this, close/reopen, it stayed open.
Anyone know how to stop Windows Media Player Legacy from closing and then reopening tiny?
Or change the default size?
Go to Windows Update then Update History. Scroll down to Uninstall Updates. Hope this helps.
