Solved Microsoft Music Update - Loss of Control Panel Functions

Until earlier today I could 'rewind' 15 seconds on the MS Music Control Panel. Having 'updated' the App this functionality has been lost. You can either rewind to the start or the end. You have to use the slider if you want to rewind less. For transcribing a multi-hour interview that is in .wma format this is now highly inconvenient.

Any idea how I can retrieve a 15 second shift button again?

Many thanks

It doesn't appear the Xbox Music app has that functionality. You can send them feedback and ask for a feature request via the feedback link in the app.

I used to do transcribing. Did you ever try GOM Player? It's pretty good for that. It has great control over moving around within an audio file. you can go back or forward in 10 second, 60 second, and 300 second increments with the arrow keys. you can also slow down or speed up playback simply with the Z, X, and C keys. for example, if I want to slow down the speaker to 0.8X, I would double-tap the X key. If I want to slow down the speaker to 0.6X, I would tap the X key 4 times. If I want to resume normal 1X speed, I hit the Z.

Thank you

Thank you for a very helpful reply. Unfortunately, I think of updates as improving functionality - alas with Microsoft it seems that updates remove useful functions and sabotage you!

Many thanks again.

Feedback Function

I cannot find the 'feedback' function for the Music app - only 'music' from groups called 'feedback' etc.! Where is this located please? Thanks
