Audio CD will not 'Play'

    Audio CD will not 'Play'

    Windows 7 SP1 on my desktop.

    If I insert an audio CD into my DVD drive, right click and choose Play it will not play. I get a message saying "application not found." If I choose instead open autoplay and play audio using Windows Music Player it plays just fine.

    On my laptop choosing 'Play' plays the CD just fine.

    Can someone help me get the CD to play using the right click Play option on my desktop.

    Thank you.

    You have to set the default player. Apparently what is currently set can't be found.

    I have Windows 10, but I think Win 7 is the same. Load an Audio CD and then RIGHT click on the icon for the drive and then select Autoplay option. In that option should be a list of programs, select the Windows Media Player (make it default).
