    try turn off and turn on Windows Media Player: Start - Control Panel - Programs and features - Turn Windows Features on or off (right menu) - Media Features - Windows Media Player - uncheck it - click OK

  • Hi,

    What happens when you click the WMP icon? This issue may occur if third party program affects WMP. To troubleshoot this issue, you can try Clean Boot mode.

    If it persists, resetting WMP is a good method.
