From Windows Explorer go to View|File Types. Find type for your midi files. Click Edit. Click New and add this action: PlayClose.
Fill in the appropriate fields as indicated. The Action field is &Play&Close. Click OK all the way out.
If that doesn't work, you can associate midi files to IrfanView if you have it; otherwise, edit your win.ini field similarly.
P.S. In response to Jody's earlier update, I now have a simple clip at my web page to run 800What.exe for those who may have
already downloaded a copy, and the clip is also in the zip file for future downloads. I need to clean it up for path searching and so
forth, but Charlie Raine has created another clip to do the whole thing without the .exe file. He should have it uploaded soon (last
minute tweaks). Thanks to both of them.
- Hi Jody,
I-View??? I have that but what does it have to do with
Media Player? Did I miss a beat here? ;-)

I believe, the original problem was having too many midi players open
and having to close them all after you have finished listening Unless
Note Tab causes the problem, Irfan View seems to do what you want. I
just played several midi files through both Netscape and Opera browsers
using IView as the midi player, and both browsers loaded only one copy
of IView to play all the midis. Set IView as the helper for the file
types first, and then try this site for several midis to play and see
