    I am using WinXP Pro. Although the icons for MIDI and MPEG files show the
    correct icon, when they are clicked on Windows Media Player won't launch.
    If I right click and select "Open with" then click on Media Player they do
    launch OK. What setting do I need to change to get them to launch with the
    left mouse button?

    When you choose Open With, click Choose Program at the bottom of the
    dropdown menu to get the complete list of programs. Choose, then check
    "always use this program to open files of this type," ok.
