I realize that this is not strictly a ham radio issue but I'm sure there is a lot of knowledge out there and someone who can help me. I had audio files on my PC that played just fine on Windows 7 with the Microsoft default player.
Now that I upgraded to Windows 10, it uses "Groove Music" which is not only confusing but only plays one 'cut' at a time. It will not play all songs in a given folder in serial fashion.
Adobe has recommended no longer using their Flash Player for security reasons so what is a good way to play these? Some are MP3 files and some are Huh??   who knows.  Huh 

Many Thanks and 73, Jim

Try Audacious.  It's a replacement/successor for the old WinAmp for Windows and XMMS for Linux.

Download page for the latest version (3.7, 32-bit only) is here:  http://audacious-media-player.org/download

As unconventional as it might sound, you might want to consider using iTunes even if you don't have any Apple mobile devices. It plays just about every format including MP3s.

Thanks, Scott.     Would I just do a web search for iTunes?      Would this be compatible with my Windows 10?   Sorry if this seems rather basic.     73, Jim

OK, I answered my own question.    It really was easy to download and install and it is free.   Now I'm learning to create a 'playlist' and it seems to do just what I need without a lot of fanfare or nonsense.    Love it!

Thanks, Scott.    73, Jim
