This did the trick, and very well too. Thanks a lot!! So counter-intuitive that they wouldn't have that feature built in like in XP.

DamselFL > Thank you for posting that link to "Types", it works perfectly for me! I just reinstalled Win7 Pro x64 and WinAmp v2.8, and for the life of me I couldn't get M3U files to associate with the correct icon. Now it works fine!
