21 Nov 2011   #1

win 7 64bit
Opening < 15 items vs. 16+... uses a different program .. ??


Just an oddity i just noticed.

background :

- i use VLC as my media player.
- WMP has not been configured.. or even allowed to connect to the internets yet.. on a rather new win 7 home premium install.

ok.. via explorer.. i highlight

any amount <or= 15.. VLC is used to open the mp3's

i highlight > 15 WMP is used ( well attempts it wants to connect to the internets..and wants me to configure it ).. to 'open'/play the mp3's.

have not attempted this on any other type of files.. not sure if it even makes sense to..

any ideas?.. thanks much
