    Open Media Player, go to Tools|Options|File Types

    and check the filetypes you want Media Player to run. Media Player should then run those filetypes by default.

    Search your menu for Preferences, Options - somewhere there is a place to tell Windows Media Player which files to run.

    You're not dense - it's just frustrating when things aren't obvious. We've all been in the same boat at one time or another...
