Microsoft has officially killed off Windows Media Center. Here’s how you can get Windows Media Center running on Windows 10.

  1. Download the WindowsMediaCenter_10.0.10134.0v2.1.rar file from here.
  2. Then, with 7-Zip or other .rar program, extract the folder to your main system drive and open it.
  3. Right-click on the file _TestRights.cmd and select Run as administrator.
  4. Then right-click on the file Installer.cmd and select Run as administrator. Press any key to exit the installer when it’s finished.

Make a quick Windows search for Media Center and it will be your top match, but you can also find it under Window Accessories in the Start menu.
You should be able to run WMC normally from there.

You can also pin to desktop or start menu to make it easier for you.
