Try setting it as your default player. Click start orb, default programs tab, set your default program.

Make a shortcut to kmplayer on the desktop/taskbar. Make a shortcut to the specific music folder on the desktop. When it pleases you, drag the folder shortcut onto the kmplayer shortcut. Voila!

If you prefer a clean desktop, then pin the parent folder of the specific music folder to the taskbar. Rt-click to open explorer/parent folder and drag music folder to kmplayer shortcut.

thank you my friends.
i have another question , when i want to open a file for exampple with km player.
right click on it and in "open with: menu if the km player was not there i should use "choose default program" and when i choose default program all file with that formatt open with kmplayer.
it is a small problem but was my old question that if i want to open a file with a program that is not listed in"open with" menu i always should use "choose default program" like picture below:

If I understand your followup question correctly, clicking on "choose default program" will present a dialog box from which a program (kmplayer) is searched for and selected to open the particular file.

On the left side of the dialog box is a tick box in which a choice can be made to associate the selected program (kmplayer) to that file's extension/format.

Leave it unticked when using kmplayer and WMP will continue to be associated with that file's format/extension.
