    I want to make Windows Media Player the default when I click on a link at a website, for example, streaming radio stations. Now when I click on the link VLC comes up and it doesn't work. What do I do?

    You can open Windows Media Player then go to Tools -> Options. Select the "File Types" heading and select all the type or click "Select All". Click on Apply/OK.


    Use Set Program Access and Defaults from the Start Menu, from the Control Panel, or from Add/Remove Programs and set Windows Media Player as the default media player.
