Media Player default question

by le7fr6 / February 24, 2006 9:30 AM PST

Using: WinXP(SP2), P4, Media Player 10

When I downloaded (or upgraded) iTunes, QuickTime seems to have assumed some of the default media duties that MP had.

Don't like QT - how do I restore MP to its former status as my main squeeze?

Restoring default media player...
by John.Wilkinson / February 24, 2006 10:06 AM PST

There are several possibilities, but the best way of doing this in Windows XP is to go start->Set program access and default (or start->control panel->set program access and defaults), select Custom, then fill in the bubble next to which ever programs you want to be default.

Hope this helps,

The forum software was upgraded a little over a week ago and since then there have been major problems, including posts disappearing for hours at a time...they don?t show in the thread, though the post count indicates they are there, and the links give the Cnet page not found error.

I received your PM and was about to respond but decided to try an experiment first to restore my original post. Apparently my reappearing post magic trick actually worked! Happy

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
