Whenever I double click on a *.mp3 file in Windows Explorer another player is started but not MusicBee.

Currently I always have to mark the *.mp3 file right click, select "Open With", "Choose default program" and then MusicBee to get MusicBee as the player.

Even if I tick "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" it does not help.

The next time I have to go through the same procedure again.

So is there a way from inside MusicBee to adjust the file associations and use MusicBee as default player?

Maybe there is an option "check for MusicBee as default player"?

First you need to run MusicBee as an administrator and check off the file types you want in General Preferences. Once you've done that, you should see MusicBee as an option for the default player in Windows settings.
