Windows 7: How to customize the preview options for .wav files?

28 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
How to customize the preview options for .wav files?

How do I customize the preview options for a folder with .wav files?
I have a huge folder full of .wavs which I need to be able to preview easy and fast, and until the last update two days ago I could simply mark one file and have a Windows Media Player preview option on the right side of the folder. Somehow, it's gone now, and instead I hear the file when I mark it. I also noticed in my volume settings that a program called "Preview Handler Surrogate Host" has appeared.

How can I go back to normal?
Thanks in advance.
