How to Find Windows Media Center on My Computer

However, it is available in only a limited number of Windows editions, such as the Home Premium and Ultimate editions in Windows Vista, and the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise editions in Windows 7. If your computer is running on one these operating systems, you can find the Windows Media Center on the "All Programs" list or inside the Windows installation directory.

Step 1

Click "Start" on the Windows Vista or Windows 7 taskbar and point to all "All Programs."

Double-click on the folder labeled "ehome."
