|Heh, thanks for the reply Ed, but I -do-actually want them opening in Media Player (that is installed and is opening other video files types just fine)... I'd just like it to be opening straight away rather than going to the 'open with' screen when I double click.|
So yes, just in case I was unclear about exactly what's happening at the moment, when I double click on an avi or wmv file (both video formats), rather than just playing in Windows Media Player it goes to the 'open with' screen. In that screen it has Windows Media Player selected by default, so I just click 'ok' and it loads fine.
I just want to not have the 'open with' screen come up in between, and as I said in my original post, ticking the 'always use' doesn't seem to be acting as it should as each time I open an avi I tick it and the next time I have to do it all again.
It's really only a single extra click, so it's more of an inconvenience than anything else, but I'm curious as to what the cause might be. And why the 'always use' button seems to have broken.
