    I have Windows 10 Pro N (build 10586.494) x64, and as you might already know, on Windows N & KN editions, you need the Media Feature Pack to have multimedia apps such as Windows Media Player, Groove Music, Movies & TV and some audio/video codecs


    The issue is that I've already installed the latest MFC (unfortunately, I can't post any links here), however I still can't see Groove Music or Movies Apps anywhere. The file is named "Microsoft-Windows-MediaFeaturePack-OOB-Package_x64.msu". I've even attempted to install it again, but it says it's already installed. Neither Groove Music nor Movies apps show up in Start Menu, and I can't find them by searching either. I have Windows Media Player installed, so I can guarantee MFP is indeed installed, but as I said, no sign of Groove Music or Movies.


    Any idea on how to find these apps? Is there any other Media Feature Pack that I need to install to have them back? Thanks in advance.

    Can you install these apps from the Store?

    Lol, it worked! Can't believe the solution was easy as that. I supposed these apps were going to be installed with MFC, but you're right, I had to download them through the Store. Thanks man :thumbsup:

    When I first faced Windows 10, one of my first actions was to remove the Store tile, considering it just a MS ad. I would have also uninstalled it, if there was the facility for doing it.

    But soon I realized that you can get some free stuff there and restored the tile. And though I don’t intend to buy anything, I understand that if you do buy, they keep a record and allow you to get it again later, e.g. if you reinstall the OS.
