Music Missing From Windows Media Player

Hey guys so this morning I tried to use Windows 10 Pro and it turned out that I didn't like it all that well, so I downgraded back to Windows 7 Pro and decided that I wanted to listen to my music and to my surprise it appears all of my music from Windows Media Player got deleted and I have no idea why, all my music is still saved on my computer and all of my videos will still play, is there any suggestion in which I can fix it thanks

I can't give you steps because I'm only using Starter, but I think that by downgrading your OS, it may have resetted the settings. But I found something on the internet.

To add media files to Media Center:
  1. On the Windows Media Center start screen, scroll to Tasks, and then click Settings.
  2. Click Media Libraries.
  3. Click the type of media that you want to add (such as Music), and then click Next.
  4. Click Add folders to the library, and then click Next.
  5. Depending on where your media files are stored, click one of the options under Where are the folders you want to add?, and then click Next.
  6. Navigate to the folders that you want to add by clicking the Plus* Picture of the Plus button or Minus* Picture of the Minus button buttons, and then select the check box next to each folder. (Files in subfolders will be included in your selection.)
  7. When you've selected all the folders that you want Media Center to monitor, click Next, click Yes, use these locations, and then click Finish.

After you've finished adding files, it might take several minutes for the files to appear in the libraries.
