changing default audio

  jonnyg111 12:07 07 Feb 2009

I seem to have several possible audio play packages available to me. At the moment, Itunes is set as default, but I'd like to change that to Windows Media Player. How do I do this?

Open media player

Go to options

File type

Tick:Select all

Do you mean you want a specific filet type - say mp3 to use WMP rather than iTunes?
If so in Vista
Right click a file with that extension > OpenWith > Choose Default Program
Option to always use this program
(you can also do this through the control panel Program assignment)

I open (Windows) Media Player - where is Options?

On mine I click on the arrow downwards under "now playing" or "library" and I get another menu. On this one says "more options".
