How do I change the default media player on Win '98?

I know pretty basic stuff....

I got several media players, Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Time, etc. Some how I got quicktime set as the default, which I hate. But I can't figure out how to get Win Media as the default...

As mentioned running Win '98...Thanks...

find a video file on your computer, right click on it, go to properties and it will say "plays with" just change it to whatever program you want to open it..

Could not get that to work...but....

Was looking around a windows.com to see if I could get some help and saw they now had WMP 9.0 (I was running 7.0). So upgraded to 9.0 and everything seems to work fine now...(I had faith in Uncle Bill that if I downloaded one of his programs it would take over!!!)
