When you install an alternative music player, such as Foobar in Windows 7, you may find that some audio types still automatically open with Windows Media Player or another media device. If you want to change this, you can force the program associations per file type to a new program. Therefore, if you have a rare audio format or DVD that you want to open in Foobar, you can set the type in "Default Programs."
