Grab the Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N and Windows 10 KN editions

Grab the Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N and Windows 10 KN editions

The N and KN editions of Windows have been around since the days of Windows XP — they feature an operating system without Windows Media Player, all due to an issue with the European Commission back in 2004 where Microsoft was accused of anti-competitive practices.

This resulted in the N edition of Windows (Europe) and the KN edition of Windows (Korea).

If you are running Windows 10 N or KN, you can add the Media Player functionality with a small update. “The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10 will install Media Player and related technologies on a computer running Windows 10 N or Windows 10 KN editions,” the description reads.
