Windows 98 and Audio

Change Your CD Player

SUMMARY: Drop the default Windows 98 CD player to use your own.

Tired of the Windows 98 CD Player opening automatically whenever you pop an audio CD in the computer? Do you have another CD Player you'd rather use?

To change the default Windows 98 settings, first double-click "My Computer" on the desktop. When "My Computer" appears, choose "View", then "Folder Options". When the "Folder Options" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, select the "File Types" tab. Scroll down to "AudioCD" and double-click it.

When the "Edit File Type" dialog appears, double-click "Play". Now, an "Editing action..." dialog box appears. Type in the application you want to start when you insert a CD, or click "Browse" to find it on your machine.

When you are done, press "OK" and close the opened dialog boxes. Test this change out by inserting a new audio CD in your computer. Windows 98 should now load your desired CD player instead of the default.
