Windows Media Player

by DLUOG / January 31, 2009 9:35 PM PST

I have Windows XP with Windows Media Player and also Real Player, which is currently my default player. First, I would like to change the default back to windows media player but don't know how. Second, I would like to get prevouusly downloaded MP3s into My Library in Windows Media Player. I go to add to File> Add to my Library> Add Folder and then click OK. A search is always completed, but nothing is ever added to My Library. Kindly advise what I am doing wrong.

I can't help you with your second problem, but I do know about the first.

In WMP goto Tools>Options>Filetypes (you might need to activate the menu bar first, that's another problem) and check the filetypes for which you want WMP to be the default player.

you can try to make a new folder where you can save all the music you want to add on your library.
