Windows 7: Player By Default

25 Feb 2010   #1

Player By Default

My problem is maybe not only Windows 7 related but it still bugs me.When I enter some folder with a lot of video files many of them are set to be played from Winamp or some other programs that I don`t want to be played from.So I go to Properties and set to be played from GOM played but when i return again to that folder same videos are set again to be played from Winamp of some other program.Is there a way that I can solve this and once I set them to GOM it stays that way??
Thanks very much in advance :)

you need to set the individual file types to play through a desired media player.
