I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open Windows Explorer.
Select from the Menu, Tools -> Folder Options
Go to "File Types" tab.
Select MIDI (after that you can do the same for MID) from the Extensions list.
Click "Change" at select the program you want to open your files.

Hope that helps!
