    Winamp has taken over all of my sound files (no sir I don't like it!) It also has this tiny problem...every time I play a Midi file, the balance moves to the right channel(once the file is playing, I can then center it,but it is irritating!):mad:

    If I uninstall Winamp...will my sound files go back to small speaker icons(wave)?

    Or, how do I change the default player...and keep it that way!

    Winamp's File Types configuration is in Options>Preferences>File Types. The ones in blue are the ones associated with Winamp. You can deselect them. You probably let it take over all during the install dialog. Should have said just keep currrent associations.

    Similarly other players will have their own association dialog.

    Or you can select (highlight) a file type, then shift+right click on it and select "open with" from the dialog windows. Then scroll to and select the player you want to use. Check "always use" and OK

    Don't know about the Midi problem, that's a strange one.

    And give Winamp a chance. You'll love the AVS editor if you mess with it awhile. Try playing with the "Amanita Muscaria" preset. :)
