Setting File Associations: Stomp on Windows Media Player


Recommended Posts

From what I can tell there is no 'easy' way to set file associations in windows. It has always been a pain because you have system level associations and user level associations for EVERY USER on the system... anyway lets stop Windows Media Player for GOOD.

Sick of Windows Media Player always popping up when you click any media? Maybe you have more than one login or app that constantly tries to take over your file associations? Use this script to set them right!

Run as administrator to reset Windows Media Player extensions it hijacks:

Example of command line I use to set file associations:
