Hi folks - I found this site out of desperation & hope somebody can help. I just bought a new computer & have three media players installed (quick time, real player and windows media player). I've been working for the last two hours trying to change the default media player to Windows Media PLayer (the computer apparently has quick time as the default player). I absolutely am pulling my hair out - the help tab does not go into how to change the default player anywhere. FYI ... I'm running Mozilla Firefox & have had much better luck controlling popups, etc than with explorer - maybe this has something to do with the media player default ??? It shouldn't. Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

John S.

Start Media Player then click tools then options then file types, either choose the files you need it to play or pess select all then apply then OK
