    Default Cannot set Default Program

    I want to set VLC as my default media player but it isn't listed in the program window shown for setting Default Programs. Another media player I have installed (Daum PotPlayer) isn't shown either. How do I go about selecting my default? I know I can set file associations but that is certainly the long way around. Help, please. Also, I tried to attach a .png file but it uploaded as "undefined." What's that all about?

    You have to go to Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations and associate the program with the filetypes. If your choice does not show up as an option, you have to browse to the Program Files and pick the .exe of e.g. VLC.
