I think it was about 5 days ago when i first noticed this.
Usually on my right click menu for audio and video, i have an option of "Play with Media Player" Well it disappeared and for 5 days I've searched about every search engine i could think of and i finally decided to come to the sanctuary.

Every website I've been to talks about changing registry keys and values to remove the item from the list. I however want it back and have no idea how. I almost sure it has to do with the shell.

Ive tried reinstalling Media Player 10 and and just about out of ideas.

If it helps, I am running Windows XP Media Center.

Thanks for the help

WMP >Tools > Options > File Types.
Be sure the files you want WMP to play are associated with it.

My mistake. I should have been more specific.

I know how to do that but I have better programs for most of my media and I prefer to keep those media types associated with those programs for ease of use.
I just wanted the option on the menu so I could quickly access a file if need should arise.
And I am also well aware of the "Open With..." submenu, but I prefer to not use it because it takes too long.

For any future responders, I know I am able to go into Folder Options and set the shell extension on there, but there are just too many file types I use the shortcut for. It would takes hours that way.

Sorry if I seem picky, I was just really used to that and I want it back

Yay post 1200
