    How do I "reclaim" file associations?

    Hello,

    I recently downloaded WinAmp 3.whatever, and it stole all the media file associations, so now every media file opens in it. I want to change back the movie files to open in Windows Media Player. How do I do that? Thanks.

    Find the File you wish to open highlite, hold your shift key down and rite click. Choose "open with"
    Broswe to the app you wish to make default, and put a check in always open with.
    hit enter

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    yeah, or winamp/options/preferences/setup/file types
    or view/folder options[file types]
    or edit the registry directly
    or use wassociate
    or ...

    I would always do it myself ... i.e from windows explorere / View File Types myself rather than use any 3rd party app. like wassociate :p
