Windows 7: Context Menu Alternate Item

Context Menu Alternate Item

I will use Winamp as an example. The 'Explorer' context menu has a 'Play in Winamp' entry. I have installed a different version of Winamp in a 'different' directory. I now want the 'Explorer' context menu to invoke the 'different' version. How do I incorporate this? And please advise how to restore should I decide to revert back to the original. Please, a 'for dummies' procedure.

-thx
