Inadvertently, I seem to have made Quicktime (which I hate) the default player for mp3 files in web pages. How can I change it back to Windows Media Player please?

Thanks,

Tom

Right-click an mp3 file in Windows Explorer. Open with --> Select 'Choose program'. There select Windows Media Player and also check the 'Always use selected program to open...' box. Hope it works for you.

Just to add, I'm using Windows Vista if that makes any difference

Thanks,

Shalini,

Thanks, that works for any downloaded files, but if I try to open a file using my browser (Google Chrome) it still uses Quicktime.

Thanks from me too. I have been plagued with the same problem. I had to go to the Properties box but it worked.

all browsers have some way of setting the default programs they use to open/play different files. You have to go into the menu up top. If it was Opera or Firefox,I could give details, but I never use IE.

Open Windows Media Player. Click Tools and select Options, then select File Types, click the box for mp3 (or click the Select All box), and finally click Apply. That should work until someone starts up the odious iTunes which will automatically promote itself to default player (perhaps some other media players like QuickTime are as self-important as iTunes).
