I can't change the default player for MP3 files. It's set to "Windows Media Player" and frozen.
I can't uninstall Windows Media Player. It doesn't show up in the "Uninstall or change program" frame in the Control Panel.
I can't run WMP without going through a whole bunch of crap that's supposed to get me to subscribe to title-lookups and setting up playlists and buying stuff from the Microsoft music store and being part of weird social media shit.
This is how it feels:
So all I can do is to remember that I have to drag my MP3 files into Media Player Classic in order to avoid all that. It just plays the file; it doesn't do anything strange. That's what I want, but I can't make MPC my default MP3 player.

It shows up under the Windows Components for me. I've not tried to uninstall it, because I use it for mp4 files, and it only asked me once about the social media stuff and never again.
Heck, are you sure it's actually WMP and not some lookalike?

MPC doesn't show up on mine. It's MPC-HC 64 version 1.7.8.
Also, if I use the "search for app" mechanism and find MPC's exe file and click on that, it gets ignored.

I loathe OSes sometimes.
