How do I make Windows Media Player my default internet video player instead of Quicktime? When I click on videos on the internet, it loads up on the same page and it opens on the actual webpage in Quicktime mode. I want it so that when I click on the link it opens up Windows Media Player and plays it there all the time (by default).

Try changing the default program to play different types of files. My guess is that when Quicktime installed (which it does when most people don't want it to) it became the default player for all sorts of files. Change it back to Windows Media Player.
