Welcome to the forum billgyrotech

First, in MusicBee go to: Preferences> General
Under 'file types', check "enable MusicBee in Windows Explorer..."
(you might need to run MusicBee with administrator rights to be able to do this)

Then in Windows 10 go to: PC Settings> System> Default apps> Set defaults by app
In the next screen select MusicBee, and choose 'Set this program as default'.

That should do it.

That worked fantastic!  Thanks for the help.  This music player is so easy to organize compared to any others I have tried.

Have a great one!
