Just updated my Windows Media Player and of course now ALL my MP3 files and movies are defaulted to Win Player.
Before, they were all defaulted to Real Audio which I prefer to use.
How can I change this default?
Thanks

Hi,

Well I use another program, but if I had to choose between real player or WMP. I would choose WMP. To open in the default player open your music folder select a MP3 (click on it once). Then press shift and right click on the track a open with box will appear, select real player and tick the box that says "always use this program to open this type of file".

You may have to go into the tools, options, file types section of wmp to make sure they're unchecked there. In real player there is a similar section to choose file types, I have the old player so can't direct you straight to the section. Real player to me is very invasive. Have a look in msconfig to see what sort of thngs real player starts up with windows, none of it needs to be there.
