How do I change the default program for opening music files?

To change the default program for opening music files on a Windows computer, there are a few simple steps you can follow.

First, right-click on the file you want to open and select “Properties” from the drop-down menu. This should bring up a window with some basic information such as the name and size of the file. In the same Properties window, there should be a “Type of File” field which will tell you the file type (such as .mp3 or .wav).

Next, click on the “Change…” button located beside the “Opens With” field. This will bring up another window containing a list of programs available on your computer. Select the program you would like to use for playing music files (e.g. Windows Media Player) and then click “OK”.

If the program you want to use isn’t in the list, you can click the “Browse” button at the bottom of the window. You should then be able to navigate to the location of the program you want to use (e.g. Program Files > Windows Media Player).

Finally, check the “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file” box and click “OK”. From now on, any music file you double-click will be opened with your selected program.

You can also set a different program as the default option for all music files by going to the same “Properties” window and clicking “Change All…” instead of just “Change…”. This will make the program you selected the default choice for playing any music file.

If you have multiple music players installed on your computer, you may also find it useful to create a shortcut to each program on your desktop. This will make it easier to switch between music players without having to manually change the default settings every time.

By following these steps, you should be able to easily change the default program for opening music files on your computer.
